    A man attacked a couple in their 60s -- apparently at random -- at the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Monday, and police are still searching for the suspect, law enforcement sources familiar with the case tell NBC 4 New York.

    The sources said the man and woman were standing at a first-floor information booth when the suspect came up to them and punched both in the face. The male victim suffered a bloody lip.

    The suspect then fled, the sources said, kicking a door and shattering the glass. 

    Both victims were seen sitting at a table in the transit hub, being tended to by several police officers. Later, FDNY EMTs helped the duo into a waiting ambulance.
