STATEN ISLAND — Police arrested the man accused of threatening to kill his girlfriend’s children and then pushing her out of a moving car on the Staten Island Expressway.

Don Daniels, 35, is being charged with assault, grand larceny, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of stolen property, police said. He turned himself in Tuesday night.

Daniels, a Queens resident, was driving with his girlfriend on the Staten Island Expressway near Fingerboard Road on July 21 when he allegedly began threatening her, police said. Daniels apparently threatened to kill the 31-year-old woman’s kids and then shoved her out of the moving car.

The woman was found in the HOV lane after drivers spotted her and called 911, police said. She suffered injuries to her head, shoulder and left leg.

Daniels also has a May arrest on record, police said. He allegedly threatened another woman said to be his child’s mother. He’s suspected of having told her, “I will kill you if you have the baby, a source said.”
