The man accused of attempting to rob a woman in the Lincoln Lanes parking lot Nov. 25 has been remanded in custody.

A man wearing a ski jacket and red hoodie approached the woman as she was getting into her car shortly before 11 p.m. Nov. 25, and demanded money.

The woman instinctively pressed her car horn several times, scaring off the suspect who fled on foot.

Video surveillance of the suspect inside the bowling alley was released to the media, and helped lead to an arrest Wednesday.

Robin Edward Konkle, 41, is facing counts of robbery and uttering threats. He will make his next appearance in Vernon Provincial Court Dec. 7.
