Hunt for jogger who 'pushed woman in front of bus'

Police are still hunting a jogger who appeared to push a woman into the path of an oncoming bus on London's Putney Bridge.

Officers said they had received a good response from the public after releasing CCTV of the incident, but are keen to speak to anyone who has yet to come forward.

The 33-year-old victim was walking across the bridge at around 7.40am on Friday May 5 when a male jogger knocked her into the road.

Luckily she escaped with minor injuries when the quick-thinking bus driver swerved to avoid her. Passengers then got off and came to her aid.

But 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 running.

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

Sergeant Mat Knowles, from Putney Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road.

"It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle.

"We are keen to speak to the jogger in the CCTV about what happened that morning.

"We would urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch with us as soon as possible."
