A 12-year-old girl was arrested and accused of the armed robbery at Juli Boeheim, the wife of Syracuse coach.

Unidentified suspect accused of pulling out "an airsoft pistol" in a confrontation at Destiny USA last week.

A 12-year-old girl was arrested and accused of the armed robbery at Juli Boeheim, the wife of Syracuse coach.

An 12-year old boy was taken into custody for allegedly robbing Juli Boeheim (wife of Hall of Fame college basketball coach Jim Boeheim) in the parking lot of a Syracuse shopping center.

According to a Syracuse police report, the victim was sitting in her car at Destiny USA March 1. The youngster approached her with an "airsoft gun", stole her phone and purse, and then got into a car with three other men before speeding away.

On the same day, the car was also found on Syracuse's east side.

Police said that the suspect was being held at Hillbrook Detention Center after he was charged with second-degree robbery and criminal possession of weapons.

Due to his age, the boy was not identified. It wasn't immediately known if he had been hired or assigned a criminal defense attorney.

Juli Boeheim (55), is the wife Jim Boeheim who has been the head basketball coach at Syracuse University since 1976. The victim was a 55-year old woman, according to police.

In an interview, the coach told a Syracuse radio station that his wife had been robbed at gunpoint. She was not hurt.

"She is definitely shaking up. This isn't TV; it'sn't movies; it's real-life. Jim Boeheim stated, "Somebody puts a gun into a person's face." "She's handling this well, I mean better that I probably would."

Jim Boeheim is the No. No. 2 on the all time list of NCAA Division I men’s basketball coaches winning. Only Mike Krzyzewski is his closest rival. His Duke Blue Devils defeated Syracuse, 88-79 on Thursday in the Atlantic Coast Conference quarterfinals at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn.

The Orange basketball team includes the couple's sons Jimmy Boeheim as well as Buddy Boeheim. After punching Wyatt Wilkes of Florida State, Buddy Boeheim was removed by the ACC on Wednesday.
