According to wikipedia, the demolition was complete by November, 1789. Here’s the full article.

I believe it begun immediately after it’s caretaker was killed by the revs. The Bastille was a symbol of great fear to the oppressed French masses so I would doubt that they would waste any time being peaceful to the building.
