Last week featured a gruesome stabbing attack at GM’s Warren Technical Center in Michigan, where a GM employee was brutally attacked by a visitor. The stabbing occurred around 9:00 AM that morning, and began when two women stepped outside to have a private discussion. When the women exited the building, talking allegedly turned to shouting, and the suspect began her attack.
32-year-old Chavonne Taylor managed to stab her mother, 52-year-old Stephanie Kerr, nine times in the neck and face area, the back, and the torso. Injuries include a collapsed lung and bowel wounds.
Fortunately for the victim, a contracted valet driver with a CPL (Concealed Pistol License) was there to intervene and prevent the suspect from continuing her attack. Initial reports indicated that the valet driver, 32-year-old Didarul Sarder, is said to have been fired by General Motors, citing the gun-free rules of the facility. However, reported community backlash and vocal support from Warren mayor Jim Fouts led to a reversal of the controversial decision.
Kerr remains in the hospital, and Taylor has been formally charged this morning with attempted murder of her mother. No motive has thus far been mentioned, but we’re sure it will eventually surface.
