Pipe bombed

An angry soccer player brutalized another with a metal pipe after a spat at Fort Hamilton HS on May 2.

Cops said that the brawl was sparked at around 11:20 am on the Colonial Road and 83rd Street side of the athletic field. Other players broke up the fight, but one of the men quickly returned, this time armed with a pipe, witnesses said.

The suspect struck his opponent, leaving the man with a bruised arm, before running off.

Big bullies

Four teenage girls mugged a 12-year-old on Bay Ridge Avenue on May 4, police said.

The tween said that she was in the playground near 12th Avenue at 3:30 pm when the girls jumped her.

The teen terrors punched the victim in the face repeatedly before running off with her Blackberry cellphone, cops were told.

Police were not told why a 12-year-old has a Blackberry.

Break-in blues
