I'm wondering if this was a shrub and did it grow outdoors?* Have you ever seen them growing in the ground?* Do you know if it gets flowers?
I can't quite tell from the picture, but is the stalk a cane like you would see on a Dracaena?
It reminds me of Prunus laurocerasus, possibly the dwarf Prunus laurocerasus 'Otto Lyuken' aka Otto Lyuken laurel.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
