Fresh appeal for witnesses as London police seek jogger

Fresh appeal for witnesses as London police seek jogger

The private-equity specialist was out of the country when the assault occurred, his lawyer said.

A 41-year-old man is being held on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm after an arrest in the nearby Chelsea area of London, police said.

Seconds later, a bus is seen swerving out of the way, and narrowly missing the woman, who suffered minor injuries.

Eric Bellquist says he has "irrefutable proof" he was in the USA at the time of the incident in Putney, southwest London, according to a statement released by his lawyer.

Police dismissed charges Saturday against a man suspected of shoving a woman in front of an oncoming buson a London bridge.

Surveillance video from the May 5 incident showed the male jogger pushing the woman into the road shortly after 7:30 a.m. It says he now represents Hutton Collins for the restaurant chains Byron Hamburgers and Wagamama, and had helmed the firm's investment in Caffè Nero.

"Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation", the law firm representing him said in a tweeted statement.

A Met Police statement said: "Following enquiries, he has now been eliminated from the investigation".

He was wearing a light grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts.

The Metropolitan Police says about 15 minutes later the runner returned in the other direction across the bridge, but when the woman attempted to speak to him, he "did not acknowledge her".

Cops have now made a renewed appeal for witnesses.
