A police information release from Tuesday evening stated that a 55-year-old woman had her purse stolen around 2 p.m. near the mall’s east entrance. Juli, the wife of long-time Syracuse men’s basketball head coach Jim Boeheim, is 55 years old.
The police release alleges that a young person began a conversation with the victim, who was sitting in her car, before displaying a handgun and reaching into the car for the victim’s purse. The suspect then proceeded to a nearby get-away vehicle with two other young people and fled the scene, the report said.
The police report doesn’t name the victim, and Syracuse Police Department spokesperson Lt. Matthew Malinowski said that “we don’t release victim names early on in the investigation.” NewsChannel 9 and syracuse.com both cited multiple law enforcement sources when reporting that Juli was the woman robbed.
Officers arrived on the scene at 2:08 p.m. after receiving a robbery call, the report said. The investigation is active and ongoing, and SPD asks that anyone with information call at 315-442-5222.
