Police release CCTV footage of jogger pushing woman in road on Putney Bridge

Police have released CCTV footage of a jogger pushing a woman onto the road with an oncoming bus on Putney Bridge last Friday.

CCTV footage shows the man shoving a woman into oncoming traffic narrowly missing a bus.

The Metropolitan police believe the man is in his early to mid thirties and is described as white with short brown hair and brown eyes, wearing a light grey T-shirt and dark blue shorts.

The incident took place Friday 4th at 7:40AM, CCTV footage was released this morning.

The 33-year-old victim, who has not been named, suffered minor injuries in the incident.

After narrowly missing the woman, the driver of the bus stopped and passengers disembarked to help.

The jogger is said to have returned to the scene 15 minutes later running in the other direction across the bridge. The victim tried to confront the man, but he ignored her.

The investigating officer from Putney Safer Neighbourhood Team, Sergeant Mat Knowles, 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.”
