These alleged ruffians are out of their gourd.

Cops are searching for a group of thirteen male and female suspects that they said hurled a pumpkin at a victim while assaulting her in Brooklyn Heights on Oct. 28.

The band of baddies approached the 21-year-old woman on State Street near Henry Street at 8:15 pm, when they threw an unknown liquid in her face before covering her head with a box and catapulting the orange squash at her, which hit the victim in her back, according to a report.

The victim didn’t sustain any major injuries and was not taken to a hospital following the attack, authorities said.
