PO’ed and punchy

A cleaning woman sprucing up a Flatbush Avenue furniture store attacked another worker on May 6 when he tried to relieve himself while she was cleaning the bathroom.

Officials said that an argument escalated when the victim stopped suspect Lily Rose Vaughan from going about her business — cleaning the bathroom at Flatbush Xpress Furniture between Clarendon Road and Avenue D.

According to published reports, the victim suffers from gastritis and needed to go right away.

When Vaughan told him to wait, the two began to argue, but the spat came to a quick end when the 56-year-old threw a trash can at her co-worker. She then picked up the porcelain lid to the toilet, broke it in half and struck the victim with one of the pieces, police said.

She also tried to bite the victim in the neck before the assault was broken up and Vaughan was arrested, charged with assault in the third degree.

Vaughan said that she was only acting in self defense.
