ELTINGVILLE — An argument between two drivers after a car accident Monday turned heated when a man threated a woman with a hammer, NYPD said.

The two cars collided on the corner of Richmond and Arthur Kill roads around 8:30 a.m., and the dispute that started between the drivers escalated when one, 42-year-old Anthony Saldibar, went to his trunk, pulled out a hammer and said "I'm gonna smash your f---ing face in," according to the criminal complaint.

The woman recorded the incident on her cellphone, prosecutors said.

Saldibar was charged with menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment, according to the Queens District Attorney's office.

He was released without bail and is due back in court on May 11, according to online court records.

Saldibar's lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.

Other notable crimes that occurred in Staten Island include:

► A woman kicked a police officer in the face as she was being transported out of Staten Island Family Court on a gurney, prosecutors said.

Police were trying to put 33-year-old Jessica Graham on a gurney to transport her to Richmond University Medical Center after she started acting "emotionally distrubed" during a Family Court hearing at 12:26 p.m. on March 20, police said.

But Graham refused to be strapped down and warned officers, "If you put me in a gurney, I'm going to kick you in the face," prosecutors said.

When an officer finally buckled her in, Graham slid down the gurney and kicked him in the face, cutting his bottom lip, according to the complaint.

Graham was taken to Richmond University Medical Center for a psychological evaluation and the officer was taken to the same hospital for his injuries, prosecutors said.

She was charged with assault, obstructing governmental administration and harassment, the DA's office said.

Graham's bail was set at $2,500 and she's due back in court on May 21, according to court records.

Her lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.

► An ex-con molested and flashed a woman who lives in the same building as him, prosecutors said.

On March 20, the woman was walking into her apartment building on Post Avenue around 4:10 p.m. when Keith Goode, 31, pressed his crotch into her buttocks, police said.

When the woman turned around to confront Goode, he dropped his pants, prosecutors said.

Goode was charged with forcible touching, public lewdness and harassment, the DA's office said.

He was previously arrested in October for criminal possession and criminal sale of drugs charges, according to court records. He was initially held on $10,000 bail, but was released without bail later that month.

Goode is now being held in Rikers on $2,500 bail. He's due back in court on May 5 for both cases, according to court records.

His lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.

► A group of five was arrested after police found 1.4 ounces of crack and other drugs inside a Port Richmond home, prosecutors said.

Police searched the home of Chauncey Dudley, 38, at about 6:20 p.m. on March 19, and found crack, cocaine, marijuana, a police radio, a scale and razors with crack residue on them as well as empty Ziplock bags, prosecutors said. 

Dudley and his roommates Jeremy Pasker, 28, Omari Kelly, 35, Keren Pasker, 63, and Julian Pasker, 38, were charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal use of drug paraphernalia, unlawful possession of marijuana and use of devices to decode police transmissions, the DA's office said.

Lawyers for Dudley, Jeremy Pasker, Keren Pasker and Julian Pasker did not respond to request for comment. Kelly's lawyer could not immediately be reached.
