YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A former Westwood man who skipped his sentencing for punching a Hillsdale man and kicking his dog was being held without bail in the Bergen County Jail today after being picked up over the weekend.
The Bergen County Sheriff’s Office forwarded a warrant for 23-year-old Christian Sapp of Jersey City, who didn’t show up for his Sept. 12 sentencing.
Westwood police took him into custody on Saturday, court officials said.
Sapp punched the 34-year-old man and kicked his dog outside the Wendy’s Restaurant on Hillsdale Avenue and then fled on May 7, Hillsdale authorities said at the time.
Officer Alex Kaplan interviewed the victim and quickly pegged the 5-foot-5-inch, 155-pound Sapp, whose criminal record includes several random attacks. Records show charges dismissed in at least two of those cases.
