Police in Texas say A woman tried to shoplift multiple frozen dinners from a Texas Walmart by threatening to infect a worker with HIV.

Dallas police placed 25-year-old Diamond Lawrence under arrest on Thursday after she allegedly attacked an employee in an attempt to infect a male worker with HIV and flee with $11 worth of stolen food.

Lawrence managed to make it outside the store with the stolen goods when an employee asked her to come back, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported.

That’s when she told the worker she had HIV and said “I can infect whomever I please,” police said.

She struck the worker and scratched his neck, attempting to draw blood and expose him to HIV, police said.

Then, she told him, “You’re welcome.”

Medics said the worker had no bloodily fluid exchange with Lawrence, meaning he’s safe from the virus.

While Wal-Mart doesn’t prosecute for stealing such a small amount of goods, Lawrence was arrested on two outstanding warrants: one for public intoxication and a second for an invalid driver’s license.

She’s being held in the Dallas County Jail on $1,500 bail.
