Juli Boeheim, the wife of Syracuse men’s basketball head coach Jim Boeheim’s wife, was reportedly robbed at gunpoint earlier this afternoon.
According to reports from Syracuse.com, Boeheim was robbed of her purse in the Destiny USA shopping mall parking lot in Syracuse, NY.
She was sitting in her car when she was approached by a “youth” who pointed a gun at her and reached into the vehicle to take her purse, per police reports.
