London jogger who allegedly pushed woman in front of bus denies attack

He categorically denies being the individual concerned and has irrefutable proof that he was in the United States at the time of the incident.

A MAYFAIR investment banker has been arrested and released pending further inquiries over the shoving of a woman in front of a bus on Putney Bridge, London.

Bellquist's lawyers say they have proof the 41-year-old could not have been the jogger on Putney Bridge. "Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation", Duncan Lewis Solicitors said in a statement.

Pictures of a jogger crossing the south London Bridge during rush hour and pushing a 33-year-old woman into the road were widely shared by British media in a bid to track down the culprit. The partner who works for Hutton Collins Partners denies that he had anything to do with it.

A Met Police spokesman said: 'Enquiries continue to identity the jogger who pushed the female pedestrian into the road'.

The bus stopped and passengers tended to the woman following the incident at about 7.40am on May 5.

Sergeant Mat Knowles says it is thanks to the "superb quick reactions of the bus driver" that she was not hit.

Police have described the jogger as a white man, aged early to mid 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

Police say the victim saw the man crossing back over the bridge and tried to stop him, but he kept jogging.

Police are still on the pursuit for the man who they think is behind the attack.
