A crazed woman wreaked havoc inside a Manhattan park and neighboring businesses Sunday — attacking strangers, smashing glasses and even lunging at a mother and baby, according to wild video and police.

The woman's rampage, in which she seemingly indiscriminately harassed and attacked parkgoers, began around 4 p.m. in Tompkins Square Park, police said.

First, she allegedly yanked the hair of a woman who was sitting on a lawn and dragged her by the hair several inches, according to the video.

She then reportedly lunged toward a mother holding a baby in her arms, causing a crowd of people watching to gasp and yell.

The shouts apparently stopped the woman from doing anything to the pair and she left the grassy area in search of her next victim, the footage shows.

The woman next smashed a drink onto the pavement and stole a man's newspaper, ripping it to shreds before getting in a woman's face, as captured on video.

Her tirade continued on neighboring streets, where she allegedly flipped over a restaurant's sidewalk table that was occupied by diners, tossed chairs and smashed glassware, according to footage taken at the scene.

The video then shows two officers placing the woman in handcuffs as a bystander walks up and tells the cops, "She needs to not be let out — no more."

"You don't go around beating up strange people in the street — like seven people — pulling their hair, dragging them everywhere," he said.

"Nobody died, b—h, nobody," the erratic woman shouted back at him, according to the video.

She later spat in the direction of a person walking by as the officers guided her into an ambulance, according to the video.

One of the officers told her to "cut it out" and another put a surgical mask over her nose and mouth.

The video pans over to New Yorkers calmly eating at outdoor dining tables like it's another day in the city.

The wild woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital for a medical evaluation after several people called 911, police said.
