NBC Charlotte reports a man proposing to his girlfriend at the restaurant Salsarita’s Monday was interrupted by a man who broke in and attempted to rob the place.
Nicholas Anderson told the news station that he put the robber in a chokehold when he tried to flee, knocking him out. Then he went back to the original task at hand, taking her to Winkler Park — which was supposed to be the plan B venue — to pop the question. His girlfriend, Deanna Deal, said yes.
As Anderson told the news station, “After all of that happened, asking her to marry me wasn’t near as bad.”
