Police arrest London jogger who allegedly pushed woman in front of bus

Warning: This video contains footage that may disturb some viewers.

The man suspected of pushing a woman into the path of a bus on a busy London road has been arrested at a residential address in the swanky suburb of Chelsea.

The 50-year-old was taken into custody after CCTV footage emerged showing the jogger shoving the woman onto the road, narrowly missing an oncoming double-decker bus.

He has since been released, but police say inquiries into the incident are on-going and confirmed the man is still the subject of an investigation.

Police say after posting photos and the CCTV footage of the incident online, they received "a huge response" to their request for information from the public.

Images of the near-death experience show the woman, 33, walking on the east side of Putney Bridge in west London, heading towards Putney Bridge Tube Station. 

The video from 7:40am on May 5 shows the jogger run across the bridge with the bus behind him. He runs past a pedestrian before appearing to shove the woman onto the road as the bus appears.

Sergeant Mat Knowles said it was thanks to the "superb quick reactions of the bus driver" that she was not hit by the vehicle. 

After the bus ground to a halt, passengers assisted the victim who received minor injuries.

The Metropolitan Police said that 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".
