The man arrested on suspicion of pushing a woman into the path of an oncoming bus on Putney Bridge has been released with no further action.

The Metropolitan Police arrested a 41-year-old man on Thursday (August 10) on suspicion of causing grievous body harm.

On Saturday (August 12) a police statement said the man has now been "eliminated from the investigation" following enquiries.

At around 7.40am on Friday May 5 a male jogger pushed a 33-year-old woman into the road on the east side of Putney Bridge.

She was knocked into the path of an oncoming bus , which narrowly avoided her.

The Met Police said: "The bus stopped and some passengers got off and rushed to the victim's aid. She received minor injuries from the incident.

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

On Friday (August 11) the solicitors representing the arrested man said their client was in America at the time of the incident.

Do you know this man?

A statement from Duncan Lewis Solicitors made to the Mirror Online said: “Our client has been wrongly implicated in this matter; he categorically denies being the individual concerned and has irrefutable proof that he was in the United States at the time of the incident.

“Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation.”

The Met Police said it is continuing to make enquiries into who pushed the woman into the road.

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