POLICE IN LONDON investigating an assault where a jogger appeared to push a woman into the path of an oncoming bus in Putney have made an arrest.

A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following police enquiries at an address in the Chelsea area this morning. He has been taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.

The Metropolitan Police released footage of the incident, which happened on 5 May, earlier this week in a bid to track the jogger down.

The bus stopped and some passengers got off and rushed to the woman’s aid. She received minor injuries from the incident.

About 15 minutes later the jogger came back the other way across the bridge. Police said the victim tried to speak to him but he did not acknowledge her and carried on jogging.

Witness appeal 

“We are still keen to hear from anyone who has information who has not yet come forward,” the Met Police said.

The jogger is described as a white man, aged in his early to mid-30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair. He was wearing a light grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information has been asked to tweet @MetCC. Information can also be reported anonymously to Crimestoppers online.
