She was walking through the park with another woman when two men approached them.
One of the men grabbed a Samsung S3 phone from the victim's hands and when she gave chase she was punched in the face.

The second male was wearing a dark jacket and was also wearing sunglasses.
A spokesperson for the PSNI said: "Police would ask anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who has any information to contact them at Musgrave on the new non-emergency number 101."
