Pipe bombed

A homeless man was arrested after beating up a sleeping cohort with a pipe in the parking lot of the Pathmark supermarket on 12th Street on May 4.

The 37-year-old victim told cops that he was in repose in the lot outside the mega-grocer between 7 pm and just before midnight, when he was awakened by the pain of being pummeled with a pipe.

He went to the hospital for three days, but when he returned to his temporary lodging in the parking lot, the thug was still there, so the victim called 911.

Cops collared the 47-year-old perp and charged him with assault, plus possession of burglar’s tools.

Where: 37 12th St.
