Detective Constable Louise Bettany said: "Although this is a very small amount of money the victim is understandably very distressed.
"We are keen to speak to anyone who was in the New Parks Boulevard area during the afternoon of Monday, September 10, and who may have seen two youths matching these descriptions.
"We would also urge anyone who witnessed the incident to contact us.
"Any information about the incident, no matter how insignificant, could help us with our inquiries."
The first youth is white, aged 16 or 17 and was wearing a black hooded top and yellow or green trainers.
The second is black or mixed race, aged 16 or 17, and was wearing a black hooded top with a yellow and black checked scarf covering his face.
He has a piercing above his left eyebrow and was wearing red, white and blue Nike Air Max trainers.
Anyone with information should contact Det Con Bettany by calling 101, or Crimestoppers, which is anonymous, on 0800 555 111.
