MANHATTAN — Investigators released photos Wednesday of a man who they said stole a 15-year-old girl's phone and shoved her to the ground in Central Park.

The man, who's in his 30s, asked the girl for a dollar and then attacked her when she said she didn't have one about 6:45 p.m. on May 2 near West 106th Street and West Drive, NYPD officials said.

The mugger, who's about 5 feet 9 inches and 140 pounds, fled the scene and hadn't been arrested as of Thursday morning, police said.

The girl refused medical attention at the scene, police said.
