Our sources say Sabrina was walking out of the bathroom when Cole spotted her in the apartment ... and the singer instantly went on the attack, yelling, "What are you doing with my man?!"

TMZ broke the story ... Keyshia was arrested for allegedly attacking Sabrina ... who went to the ER and is now on pain meds.

Keyshia is now out on bail.

Tricky.
