Sven Badzak Bio- Sven Badzak Wiki
Sven Badzak, 22, who was privately educated, was on his way to Waitrose to buy orange juice for his dad when he was attacked on Willesden Lane in Kilburn just after 5.30pm yesterday.
Witnesses watched him die on the street from stab wounds with his shopping bag next to him as he became the second victim to die from a knife attack in the capital in 24 hours.
More than a dozen other people were knifed over the weekend across the city.

Sven Badzak Age
Sven Badzak was 22-years-old.
Sven’s mum Jasna, 49, said her “only child” was “the nicest of the nice kids.”
She told My London: “He was the most polite boy you could possibly imagine. The perfect manners, he spoke the perfect Queen’s English.
“If we passed ambulances in the car he’d make us stop and ask if I could help as I was a doctor.”
Jasna attended medical school when she was just 16 and says she “worked hard” to give her son the best life possible.
He attended the posh Weatherby School and then Roehampton University – and intended to become a lawyer, his mum said.
Yet, Sven passed away at the age of 22 after he and another young man were stabbed on the streets of lawless London last night.
The teen knifed in the same incident – named by friends as ‘Bobby’ – was rushed to hospital in a “critical” condition.
Police have not confirmed the motive behind the double stabbing in North London
Jasna said her son had left to pick up orange juice from the shops for his dad before he was attacked.
She said: “In the morning he had gone out to do some jobs with his dad but forgot orange juice. I gave him my card and he left.
“He went to Waitrose on Queens Way, I can see from my card.”
After her son did not arrive home, Jasna tried to contact him.
“At around 8.30 I called him,” she said.
“I thought maybe he’s playing football or something. I went for a quick shower and then the police turned up at my door.
“They told me he died.”
She added: “He was a child. My child. My only child.”
Sven was a sociology graduate and worked for Transport for London, according to his pals.
Michael Barnes, 19, a friend of the victim, said: “Sven and Bobby were my friends
“We just came to drop off some flowers.
“I don’t know what happened. I was out and saw on my phone that my friend was 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 was 17, I think.
“We were all really shocked when we saw it on the news.
“They really stuck to their own and did their own thing. It wasn’t gang-related or anything like that.
“Bobby worked in construction and Sven was a train driver for TfL.
“Sven even had a degree in sociology,
“We were all really shocked, they were really great people.”
An order granting police additional “stop and search” powers in the Kilburn area was issued in the wake of the double stabbing.
Police say there have been no arrests, and inquiries are continuing.
A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police were called at around 5.40pm on Saturday, February 6 to a stabbing incident in Willesden Lane, NW6.
“Officers attended along with London Ambulance Service and found two males suffering stab injuries.
“One of the males – aged in his 20s – was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed.”
His death – which has sparked a murder probe – was a revenge attack for a gang stabbing last month, drill rap forum users have claimed.
Another 10 people were injured in the knife attacks on Friday.
The first victim was taken to hospital after being stabbed at an address in Croydon just before 7pm.
Then, four men – aged in their 20s – turned up at a South London hospital with stab injuries sustained during a fight in Streatham.
Video footage of that altercation has emerged showing three men battering another man, who appears to be holding a knife, in the back of a van.
