A Texas woman visiting New York City for the first time wound up stunned and bleeding from her nose after a belligerent woman tore through a Manhattan puppy store over the weekend, kicking cages, swatting cellphones and slapping the tourist across the face as staff escorted her out the door.

Adding insult to injury, she appeared to spit at the stunned victim before storming out the exit.

The smack, which reverberated loudly on cellphone and surveillance video, shocked bystanders in the packed store.

Video shared by Citipups Chelsea shows the raging woman kicking at kennels with puppies inside, swatting at a store manager’s cellphone as he attempts to record the encounter and slapping the random bystander on her way out.

The store has released a clear photo of the suspect, wearing a dark winter coat and a pink purse, in the hope that she is arrested.

“And they were kind of like, ‘Oh, hell no. In Texas we don’t let people get away with that.’ And I was like ‘Well, welcome to New York.’”

— Emilio Ortiz, store manager

The NYPD said it received a report of an assault at the shop around 3:45 p.m. Saturday.

“So she was a tourist, and it’s, like, imagine being your first day in New York, you’re just walking around all of sudden some crazy person just assaults you,” he told the New York Post

“Her friend was there, too, and her friend called her husband, who’s a cop in Texas, and I was kind of like tongue in cheek saying to her even if they arrest this lady, they’re probably going to let her go tomorrow,” he added, taking a swipe at the Big Apple’s lenient bail laws and approach to criminal suspects. “This is the way New York has been operating right now.”
