Attempted Murder Stopped By Concealed Carrier In Michigan


WARREN, MICHIGAN — A visitor to the General Motors Technical Center walked into the building Wednesday morning and asked to see a female employee. That employee came out, and the two reportedly started arguing with each other. The verbal argument then made it’s way outside, and things quickly escilated.

Police say the visitor, who is also a female, pulled a knife on the employee and began stabbing her in the neck, back and abdomen numerous times. The attack was stopped by an alert valet driver who was carrying a concealed firearm.

The driver pulled his firearm on the suspect and waited for police to arrive, where she was taken into custody. The employee suffered multiple stab wounds and was taken to the hospital where she was last listed in critical condition.

Neither the victim or suspect are cooperating with police.

During an interview with Fox 2 News, Mayor Jim Fouts made note that the GM Technical Center has never had a violent incident that he can remember during his decades involved with the area.


“It’s not only unexpected and unbelievable, but it’s unprecedented. It’s just never happened at the GM Tech Center before,” said Fouts.

Those words are a sobering reminder that violence can happen anywhere, even where it’s least expected. Luckily for the victim, a valet driver, who happened to be in the immediate area and who happened to be carrying a concealed firearm, was able to stop the attacker from doing even more damage than she did.

The valet driver has been identified as 32-year-old Didarul Sarder, who spoke with news stations. While he initially thought he had been fired after the incident, GM made the announcement that he has not been fired.

The GM campus is a designated gun free zone.

    I read on another site that GM fired the concealed carrier.

    • Michael Adams

      would not doubt that , damn communistic corporate policies.

      • tinytall

        Michael, you realize how silly that comment is, right, or was that on purpose? Their policies are likely due to the economic forces (reduced intelligence on the part of their customers), and they kowtow to what makes money. That’s not communist at all, just “good business.” I disagree wholeheartedly since the valet probably saved them a TON of bad press (not one MSM covered the issue) and the company didn’t have their first death, which WOULD have been all over the news. To me, they need serious management training.

    “Attempted Murder Stopped By Concealed Carrier In Michigan”

    Well, techically, Attempted Murder was not stopped, she did attempt to murder her. He likely stopped a murder, not attempted murder, because it was attempted. Semantics, I know. lol

    Were they black?

    • Ronald Marshall

      Most likely.

  • Gordon Waite

    Suspect and victim “not cooperating” with police and the armed citizen that saved a life fired by employer for legally having a weapon. Really interested in the racial makeup of all parties involved. Why you ask? Because it is the Detroit area, the victim and suspect are uncooperative with the investigators and the good guy was fired by a white dominated major corporation. Aren’t you just a little courious too?

    • Rick Brown

      Good guy not fired. More likely news media trying to make a ‘better’ headline. And you’re obviously just trolling. Their race in not important, nor is where it happened. Two people had a disagreement, one took it too far. I’m guessing the driver could have stopped it without a gun if necessary, the gun just made it easier and safer for him.

      • Gordon Waite

        Glad to hear he was not fired! But you really live n a candy land if you think that the race is not relevant. Even more so if you think people don’t need a gun to stop a knife attack! I see I am far from the only one interested in the demographics of the incident. After reading your response I can only say “How naive you are!”

    The GM campus is declared a ‘gun free’ zone? Just declare it a stabbing free zone or criminal free zone. It’s just as pointless.

  • Dexterbob

    What seems to be left out of this article is that it was a family squabble. According to other media the daughter attacked her mother.

    • Gordon Waite

      Well now I know they were black!
