Didarul Sarder, a valet outside of the General Motors Technical Center, will be given a mayoral proclamation for his role in stopping the stabbing outside the GM facility, according to The Detroit News.
Sarder interrupted the stabbing incident, which involved the 32-year old daughter of a 52-year old GM employee. The GM employee’s daughter had attempted to stab her mother outside the lobby. When Sarder saw the incident unfold, he approached the daughter with his handgun and yelled for her to stop. Sarder is licensed to conceal carry.
Warren Mayor Jim Fouts said the man absolutely deserved to be recognized.
“This is a clear act of heroism by Sarder, probably saving a life,” Fouts said Wednesday in a statement. “He deserves special recognition for his quick action.”
The valet said his first reaction was “to try and save this woman’s life.”
Sarder was originally suspended from his valet position for carrying the weapon on duty, but has since been reinstated.
