Tiffany Harris — arrested and released twice in three days after being charged in separate misdemeanor assaults in Brooklyn, including on a trio of Orthodox Jewish women — was arrested a third time on New Year’s Eve.

Harris was picked up by New York City Sheriff’s deputies at a Brownsville, Brooklyn, hotel on an arrest warrant issued earlier Tuesday after she allegedly failed to comply with court-ordered monitoring, officials said.

She had allegedly blown off an appointment with social workers at Brooklyn Justice Initiatives, which runs a supervised release program that helps defendants make their court dates and connect with such services as drug treatment and mental health counseling.

“They issued a bench warrant around 5 p.m. this evening,” New York City Sheriff Joseph Fucito told The Post.

“At 6:18, I was notified that she was a fugitive. We put together teams of deputy sheriffs that did basic background investigation, and started conducting interviews and canvassing known locations,” he added.

A lead materialized that she might be at the Hotel Omega, and investigators were able to confirm through surveillance video that Harris was there, the Sheriff said.

Harris was arrested at 10:15 p.m., and was being held pending an arraignment expected Wednesday morning.
