According to NBC Charlotte, a Hickory, North Carolina, man, Nicholas Anderson, was working up his courage to ask his girlfriend Deanna Deal to marry him when he spotted a man enter the Mexican restaurant they were eating at and demand cash.
After seeing the suspect, later identified as Graham Wilson Kiziah, take money and hit an employee, Anderson sprang into action, grabbed Kiziah by the neck, and rendered him unconscious.
Was Anderson's girlfriend impressed?
"Yes!" she said to his marriage proposal in a local park a few hours later.
