The suspect was picked up at 11 p.m. Sunday and was being held at the Manhattan Robbery Squad on 12th Street in Greenwich Village, cops said.

He was arrested by cops in Brooklyn after a crime-stoppers tip led police to the shelter he was staying at on Rogers Avenue in Crown Heights, police sources told The Post.

The suspect allegedly got into a fight with a 59-year-old man while panhandling aboard a No. 2 train in Manhattan about 11:15 p.m. Saturday.
