Police were on the scene near the LIRR station.

A middle-aged woman was treated by SB-VAC near the Long Island Railroad Station at Stony Brook University on Thursday after she was allegedly attacked and robbed by a person on foot.

University Police would not confirm reports Thursday afternoon, but as many as nine police vehicles from Stony Brook University Police and Suffolk County Police were on the scene shortly after noon.

Police spoke with the victim as she was being treated by SB-VAC, and have begun a search of the area hoping to find evidence of the robbery. The woman said her purse was stolen.

Privately, officers at the scene questioned the events described by the woman, who says she was screaming for help immediately after the incident. Nobody else at the station described hearing or seeing anything out of the ordinary.
