Putney jogger case: Police arrest 41-year-old man on suspicion of GBH


Police hunting a Putney Bridge jogger who knocked a woman into the path of an oncoming bus have arrested a 41-year-old man.

The man is being held at a south London police station on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

CCTV released earlier this week showed a male jogger appear to push a woman into the road as she walked past him.

The 33-year-old victim escaped with minor injuries after a quick-thinking bus driver swerved to avoid her.

She claims he ran back across the bridge 15 minutes later, but he did not acknowledge her and carried on running.

The incident happened at around 7am on Friday May 5 but an appeal to find the jogger was only launched this week.

Met Police said they had received a good response from the public and continued to appeal for witnesses.
