A heartbroken mother has 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 just after 5.30pm yesterday and died on the street with his bag of shopping next to him.
His mother, Jasna Badzak, 49, told My London: ‘He was the most polite boy you could possibly imagine. The perfect manners, he spoke the perfect Queen’s English.
‘He always asked people how their day was, how their family is, if he could do something for them.

‘If we passed ambulances in the car he’d make us stop and ask if I could help as I was a doctor.’
It comes after a spate of stabbings in the capital over the weekend left two dead and 10 injured in seven separate attacks.
Officers were called to Willesden Lane with London Ambulance Service and found two males suffering stab injuries.
Mr Badzak was pronounced dead at the scene and a second male – believed to be aged 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 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.
