Lawyers for an American investment banker arrested on suspicion of pushing a woman into the path of a London bus say he had nothing to do with it.

Police are still on the pursuit for the man who they think is behind the attack.

CCTV footage of the push and the initial appeal attracted hundreds of calls from the public after being widely shared on social media.

41-year-old Eric Bellquist, a US citizen, was questioned by police but denies any involvement.

Mr Bellquist had denied being the man involved and claimed that he was in the USA at the time of the incident.

He was released on the same day pending further inquiries.

The 33-year-old victim was walking across Putney Bridge at about 7.40am on 5 May, when the incident occurred. Mat Knowles, the investigating officer from the Putney Safer Neighborhood Team, said in a statement. As the bus came to a stop, passengers got off to help her.

"Enquiries continue to identify the jogger who pushed the female pedestrian into the road".

The woman was put in "extreme" danger and only avoided a passing double-decker bus because of the quick reactions of its driver, police said.

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

The Metropolitan Police says 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".
