A homeless man allegedly assaulted two cops at Bellevue Hospital early Wednesday — biting one on the arm — hours after he was busted for violating an order of protection at a Manhattan shelter, police sources said.

Cops were first called to a men’s shelter on East 53rd Street near Second Avenue at 10:30 p.m. for 29-year-old Eric Summers, who allegedly violated an order of protection a fellow resident had against him, police sources said.

Summers was taken to Bellevue Hospital. As cops then tried to move him to the 17th Precinct stationhouse for processing around 3 a.m., he allegedly used one uncuffed hand to pull a box out of the trash and hit an officer with it.

He bit another cop on the forearm, according to police.

Both officers were treated at Bellevue.

Summers was charged with assault, cops said.
