Man freed in Putney Bridge jogger probe

Man freed in Putney Bridge jogger probe

The incident happened at 7.41am on May 5, but a police manhunt went underway when the footage was released on August 8.

Metropolitan Police today released the city banker, saying they had "eliminated him from the investigation".

"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".

A disturbing incident was recently reported of a jogger, running across Putney Bridge in London, who deliberately shoved a woman off the sidewalk and into the oncoming traffic. "Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation", Duncan Lewis Solicitors said in a statement. The partner who works for Hutton Collins Partners denies that he had anything to do with it.

The Met said he will face no further action.

The arrest came after police released surveillance camera footage showing a jogger in shorts and T-shirt banging into a pedestrian, who tumbled in front of a double-decker bus.

According to Thursday's police statement, the bus stopped and some passengers got off to help the victim.

They say that the man shown in the video ran back across the bridge around 15 minutes after the attack; the victim attempted to speak to him but police say "he did not acknowledge her".

Police have described the jogger as a white man, aged early to mid 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.
