Stranger Smacks Woman in Face at Port Authority, Tells Her to Go Back to Her Country: Police

A strange man started arguing with a woman in a Duane Reade at Port Authority Bus Terminal, then hit her in the face while remarking on the color of her skin and telling her to leave the country, authorities say. 

NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the Aug. 29 altercation at the Eighth Avenue hub. The 41-year-old victim suffered a minor injury and refused medical attention at the scene; the suspect ran off after the attack. 

Police released a grainy surveillance image of him (above). Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
