Wrong man arrested in United Kingdom jogger-rage case

Jogger knocks woman into path of bus

On Thursday, London's Metropolitan Police announced on Facebook that a "man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following police enquiries at an address in the Chelsea area on the morning of Thursday, 10 August".

So now London police are again searching for who pushed the 33-year-old victim while on the Putney Bridge.

They say that the man shown in the video ran back across the bridge around 15 minutes after the attack; the victim attempted to speak to him but police say "he did not acknowledge her". The bus swerves to narrowly avoid her.

The man suspected of pushing a woman into the path of a bus on a busy London road denies being the attacker.

"Police investigating an assault after a jogger appeared to push a woman into the path of an oncoming bus in Putney have made an arrest", London police said in a statement.

His lawyers released a statement, after their client was cleared, saying the man could prove he was in the USA when the incident occurred on May 5. The bus stops just before hitting the woman. His lawyers are saying that their client has been wrongly implicated in the crime. The bus stopped to allow passengers to attend to the woman, who suffered minor injuries.

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

A Met Police statement said: "Following enquiries, he has now been eliminated from the investigation". He was wearing a grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts.
