Arrest made in relation to Putney Bridge

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.

A 50-year-old 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 - writes met.police.uk.

He was taken to a south London police station for questioning. He has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

Officers previously issued CCTV of the incident and received a good response from the appeal.

At about 07:40hrs on Friday, 5 May the 33-year-old victim was walking across Putney Bridge on the east side heading towards Putney Bridge Tube Station when a male jogger knocked her over into the road and into the path of an oncoming bus, which narrowly missed hitting her.

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.

Officers continue to appeal for any witnesses to the incident.
