- London Metropolitan Police
Police have released another CCTV image of a jogger who pushed a woman in front of a bus on a London bridge earlier this year as they continue to attempt to work out who he is.
An unidentified jogger shoved a 33-year-old woman in front of an oncoming double-decker bus on Putney Bridge, south London, around 7.40 a.m. on May 5 this year:
Video footage of the apparently unprovoked attack went viral after a police appeal in August, and sparked huge amounts of commentary online.
Despite the jogger’s instant infamy, police are no closer to finding the suspect more than four months after the incident took place.
He was described as a white man in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair in a renewed appeal on Wednesday by the London Metropolitan Police.
The bus managed to swerve out of the way in time, and the woman received only minor injuries. The bus driver has since been hailed as a hero.
The victim saw the jogger again when he returned to the bridge 15 minutes later and tried to speak with him, police said. He, however, ignored her and continued his run.
Since putting out its first appeal to find the jogger, police have arrested two 41-year-old men but have subsequently released them without charges. An American private equity executive was among the arrested, but has since been cleared.
The Met added that some people have volunteered just a name without further elaboration.
“We are grateful to those who have assisted so far,” Detective Sergeant Chris Griffith said. “However, I am also appealing for anyone who has given just a name to contact police or Crimestoppers again with as much information as possible so we can fully follow up those lines of enquiry.”
