A man has been charged for the murder of delivery driver Takieddine Boudhane following a suspected road rage attack last year.

Mr Boudhane, known to many as Taki - was riding his motorbike when he collided with a van in Lennox Road at about 6.50pm on Friday, January 3 2020.

The incident escalated and he was attacked and stabbed in the street.

He died at the scene despite the efforts of emergency services.

A post-mortem examination found the cause of death to be an incised wound to the chest.

Nathan Smith was charged with murder on Thursday June 3 having arrived at Heathrow Airport on a flight from Lisbon, Portugal, the Metropolitan Police said.

The 27-year-old had been subject to a European Arrest Warrant after he left the country following Mr Boudhane’s death.

He will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday, June 4.

Mr Boudhane, an Algerian national living in Enfield, was working as a delivery driver for Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

Last year, Mr Boudhane’s mother Saida Boudhane said: “Whoever did this horrible crime didn’t kill just my son Taki, but they killed our entire family.

“My son is still alive until we bring to justice the person who murdered my beloved son. All I want now is justice for Taki.”
