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

Thugs broke into at least two homes last week. Here’s the quick rundown:

• A thief broke into a 77th Street home on May 4, taking over $7,000 in jewelry. The 73-year-old homeowner said that he returned to the house, which is between 10th and 11th avenues, at 2 pm to discover that a thief had used a backyard chair to climb into the master bedroom and steal the loot.

• A thief busted into a 62nd Street home on May 3 and made off with $2,000 and some jewelry. The victim told police that the house, which is between 10th and 11th avenues, was ransacked when he returned home at 2:30 pm.
