A valet attendant in Michigan who pulled a gun to stop a stabbing attack at his workplace said he has been fired.

Didarul Sarder said he was heading into work at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren when he heard a woman calling for help as she was being stabbed repeatedly by another woman.


The suspect, the 32-year-old daughter of the employee, came to see the woman at work and the two argued in the lobby before the suspect stabbed the employee multiple times in the neck, back and abdomen, a local Fox affiliate reports.

Sarder pulled his gun and ordered the suspect to drop the knife. Then he held her until the police arrived.

Sarder, who works for a company that has a contract with GM, said he was fired on the spot and escorted from the property even though he has a license to carry a firearm. He said he started working at GM in December was not aware that they had a no-gun policy.

GM officials, however, said the company did not request that Sarder be fired and to their knowledge is still “an employee of the vendor.”
