Two teens robbed a 45-year-old woman at knifepoint in Central Park late Wednesday, authorities said.
The victim was on the Great Lawn at the East Drive and East 84th Street around 9:50 p.m. when two 14-year-old boys approached, displayed a knife and demanded cash, according to police.
She said she didn’t have any cash, so she forked over her iPhone, cops said.
Someone called 911, and responding officers quickly busted the two teens nearby, cops said.
The incident comes nearly a week after a homeless man allegedly punched a woman and snatched her phone in Central Park on Friday.
Gerardo Rosario Cruz, 53, was arrested two days later and charged with second-degree robbery, according to the NYPD.
