Mr Badzak Wiki – Bio
Detectives said that Mr. Badzak was chased by a group of men and attacked after he fell on Willesden Lane.
Met Police said that Mr. Badzak’s 16-year-old friend was also stabbed in the attack and was seriously ill in the hospital.
Ch Insp Guy Ellwood called the attack “barbaric”.
The officers were summoned to Willesden Lane on Saturday at 5:40 pm GMT, where they found Mr. Badzak injured.
Det Ch Insp Darren Jones said Mr. Badzak was taken to a hospital in central London, where he later died.
“At this early stage, we believe Sven and his friend got into an argument with a group of men.
“While this group was chasing the couple, Sven and his friend broke up. Sven fell to the ground and was attacked by some groups.
“His friend was also attacked, but managed to seek shelter in a shop. However, he remains critically ill in the hospital.” Det Ch Insp Jones appealed to any witnesses who were in Willesden Lane and Kilburn High Road areas at the time of the attack.
The murder investigation came after 13 more people were injured in a “heinous” wave of knife crimes in parts of the capital.
Throughout Friday night, the Met was summoned to separate stabbings in Croydon, Chislehurst and other parts of Streatham.
One of the victims, a 22-year-old man, was attacked in the Wisbeach area of Croydon.
Another 24-year-old man was stabbed on Oakfield Road near West Croydon station on Saturday afternoon.
Hours later, police said a 15-year-old boy was attacked at Churchill Gardens Estate in Westminster.
The Met added that none of these victims suffered life-threatening injuries.
