From Daily Mail:
A man's dream proposal to his girlfriend at a restaurant almost turned sour when a robber burst in on the couple.
But Nicholas Anderson simply grabbed the suspect in a chokehold as he tried to flee, put him out cold and then got on with the task at hand.
Nick had been working on the right way to pop the question to girlfriend Deanna Deal and he and her son Brighton had come up with Salsarita's Mexican restaurant in Hickory, North Carolina, as the best place to do it.
In tackling the roober, his act of heroism was greeted with applause by other diners.
Nick told NBC Charlotte: 'The manager came to the door and locked the door. The guy behind the manager pushed him out of the way and unlocked the door.'
That's when he sprang into action, grabbing suspect Graham Wilson Kiziah around the neck and choking him, putting him out cold within seconds.
Luckily Nick and Brighton had a back up venue, driving over to nearby Winkler Park so Nick could propose to Deanna - who still had no idea what he had planned. Luckily, she said yes.
Nick said: 'After all that happened, asking her to marry me wasn't near as bad.'
According to whky.com Kiziah, 26, was a suspect in two previous robberies at the same Salsarita's on July 11 and July 12.
The Hickory resident has been charged with one count of common law robbery and two counts of robbery with firearms or other dangerous weapons.
