She entered the park at 67th Street and Central Park West and walked eastbound on the pedestrian path. She passed four males, Hispanic and black, 15 to 17 sitting on a bench near the carousel about 9:30 p.m.
Two suspects shoved her and smacked her iPhone out of her hands and picked it up and fled.
Two others pushed her to the ground and kicked her.
The theives took her black Gucci handbag with credit cards along with $500 dollars.
Her injuries included a bump on her head, cuts and bruises to her wrist and knee.
