Sven Badzak Wiki
Sven Badzak Biography
A heartbroken mother paid tribute to her ‘beloved’ son, who was stabbed to death on his way to Waitrose to pick up some orange juice.
Sven Badzak, 22, was attacked on Willesden Lane in Kilburn shortly after 5.30pm yesterday and was killed in the street with his shopping bag beside him.
His mother, Jasna Badzak, 49, told My London: ‘He was the most polite boy you can imagine. Perfect manners, he spoke perfect Queen English.
“ He always asked people how was his day, how is his family, if he could do something for them.
The incident was the latest in a blood-soaked 48 hours in London with several stabbings across the capital, including this incident in Kilburn
“If we passed ambulances in the car, he would make us stop and ask if he could help, since he was a doctor.”
It follows a series of stabbings in the capital over the weekend that left two dead and 10 wounded in seven separate attacks.
Officers were called to Willesden Lane with the London Ambulance Service and found two men with stab wounds.
Badzak was pronounced dead at the scene and a second man, believed to be in his teens, was taken to hospital. His condition has been assessed as critical.
Michael Barnes, 19, a friend of the victim, said: ‘Sven and Bobby were my friends.
‘We just came to leave some flowers.
I do not know what happened. I went outside and saw on my phone that my friend had been stabbed.
We’ve obviously tried to find some answers, but none of us know anything so far, just that Sven and Bobby have been stabbed.
Sven was 22 and Bobby 17, I think.
“ We were all really surprised when we saw it on the news.
“They really stuck to their thing and did their thing. It wasn’t gang related or anything like that.
Bobby worked in construction and Sven was a train conductor for TfL.
‘Sven even had a degree in sociology,
“We were all really surprised, they were really great people.”
Following the double stabbing, an order was issued giving police additional “stop and search” powers in the Kilburn area.
Police say there have been no arrests and investigations are continuing.
