A man was arrested Friday morning after he allegedly attempted to rob a bowling alley just before 8 p.m. Thursday and then called to tell on himself hours later, police said.

Paul Harrill, 36, allegedly demanded cash from an employee at the Brunswick Zone at 999 Circle Drive. But when the employee couldn't open the register, he left the store, Colorado Springs Police said.

About 5 hours later, Harrill called police from a 7-Eleven pay phone near the bowling alley saying he was upset that they did not respond to the robbery.

When police found Harrill in the area, he told officers that he was upset about how they had handled an earlier disturbance. When they didn't show up to talk to him about his complaint, he allegedly attempted to rob the bowling alley to get their attention.

Harrill was booked into the El Paso County jail on suspicion of attempted robbery.
