Worker Killed With Sword Made at Factory

DETROIT (Oct. 29) - A factory worker attacked and killed a fellow employee with a sword the suspect apparently made himself at the metals plant where both men worked, police said Thursday.

Witnesses told police the 30-year-old man had complained he was being bullied by the victim at the Peerless Steel Corp. factory, which makes metal powders used in automobile brakes.

The suspect had been working on the sword for several days at the factory.

"After the suspect had made the weapon, (he) brandished it ... where the other employees could see it. He told all the other employees to go home," said police Inspector Bill Rice.

The employees fled, called police and remained outside the plant.

Inside, the suspect struck Anthony Williams, 40, with the sword in the neck, nearly decapitating him.

The suspect ran away but later returned to the factory. When police arrived, he was having a beer and smoking a cigarette, authorities said.

The suspect's name was not immediately released.

Yup, when your fellow co-worker starts to make a sword, you know its time to stop bullying him.

What is funny is it took him THREE FREAKIN' DAYS to make the sword... and no one did anything. :confused:

The Australians seem to think that is an excellent idea.

I never said that. But if I worked beside him, I would have said something.

Plus, he's not doing his work.
