SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A man proposed to his girlfriend immediately after the couple was arrested for aggravated robbery, San Antonio, police said.

Managers of a Family Dollar Store said they attempted to stop Treila Woods, 24, before she left the store Monday morning, suspecting her of shoplifting. The alleged driver of her getaway car, Sean Foxx, 24, watched her attempt to leave through a broken and unmoving door, and came inside to help her, police said.

"He sees she's in trouble so he goes on in the store to try to help her escape, goes in through one of the open doors. They exit the store. He threatens the managers, telling them he'll be back to get them because they were going to hurt his girlfriend," said Sgt. Daniel Alonzo of the San Antonio Police Department Robbery Task Force.

Foxx and Woods were arrested a short time later, after which Foxx proposed marriage and Woods accepted, KSAT-TV, San Antonio, reported Tuesday.
