NEW YORK CITY — A robbery duo traded ‘pokeballs’ for handcuffs Saturday after they roughed up a man playing ‘Pokemon Go’ in Central Park on Saturday, sources said.

The New Hampshire man was walking southbound on the footpath to 102 Street and Cross Drive around 6:50, when he was pushed from behind, sources said.

“I have a gun give me your stuff,” one of the suspects told the victim as another suspect stole his wallet, iPhone 6, and backpack, sources said.

Cops found the victim’s property but no gun was recovered, sources said.
