14-year-old killed in London sword attack identified as Daniel Anjorin

“He was a good boy. A lovely boy. [The family] are in shock and are very heartbroken. Such a young boy taken away from a family.



Local sources have identified the 14-year-old boy who lost his life in a sword attack in Hainault, north-east London, as Daniel Anjorin.

The tragic incident occurred on Tuesday when a man wielding a sword targeted multiple individuals following a vehicular collision with a house.

On Wednesday, the Metropolitan Police released an image of Daniel.

Holy Family Catholic School in Waltham Forest expressed deep sorrow, stating, “It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of the child of one of our esteemed staff members. This morning, Mrs. Anjorin’s son was tragically taken from us as he made his way to school. We ask for your prayers and support for Mrs. Anjorin, her husband, and their remaining children during this incredibly difficult time.”

Daniel, reportedly a student at Bancroft’s School in Woodford Green, attended the same school as a girl who tragically lost her life due to a stabbing incident in Nottingham last year. On Wednesday, a flag flew at half-mast outside the school in remembrance.

The tragic events in Hainault transpired on Tuesday morning, as a man wielding a sword embarked on a rampage, targeting the teenager and causing injuries to two other civilians and two police officers.

Regrettably, the 14-year-old boy succumbed to his injuries shortly after being transported to the hospital.

Following the incident, a 36-year-old man was subdued with a Taser, arrested, and subsequently hospitalized due to injuries sustained when his van collided with a house.
