Police arrest jogger who pushed woman into moving bus path


Police in London have arrested a jogger who appeared to push a woman into the path of a bus on Putney Bridge.

The Met Police said the 41-year-old was detained at an address in Chelsea on Thursday morning on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
The arrest comes after CCTV footage showed the woman, 33, narrowly avoid serious injury due to the bus driver’s quick reaction.
The suspect is in custody at a south London police station, the Met said.
On Wednesday, the force said it had received a “huge response” to its appeal for information.
CCTV of the incident, which happened on 5 May, was issued earlier in the week in an effort to trace the jogger after police attempts to establish his identity had failed.
The footage shows a man barging the woman to the ground and off the pavement, into the road.
