British police on Thursday said they had arrested a 41-year-old jogger on suspicion of knocking a woman into the path of a bus on a busy west London street earlier this year.

Closed-circuit TV footage, released by investigators earlier this week, showed the male runner knocking the 33-year-old woman into the path of a bus that just managed to swerve out of her way.

“Police investigating an assault after a jogger appeared to push a woman into the path of an oncoming bus in Putney have made an arrest,” London police said in a statement.

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. The woman received minor injuries from the incident.

The arrest came after a public appeal earlier the week for help in tracing the jogger.

Although the incident happened in May, police said they had received a “good response” from the appeal, and they were still looking for other witnesses.
