A chemist at the Sonar Products pharmaceutical and cosmetics plant in Carlstadt was fired and is facing criminal charges after a former co-worker had an anti-freeze-type chemical poured into her coffee and acid sprayed on her coat.

Tiffany Sapphire DeJesus, 29, of Wallington, is free on $10,000 bail, pending court action on charges of aggravated assault.

It’s unclear whether the incident was personal or aimed at the company.

The victim has undergone blood tests after spending the night at Hackensack University Medical Center, Carlstadt Chief Thomas Nielsen said.

The 5-foot-9, 220-pound DeJesus, who is married, spent the same night at the Bergen County Jail, records show.
