The man arrested on suspicion of pushing a woman in front of a bus in London has been eliminated from the investigation.
In a statement, the Met Police said the 41-year-old man arrested on Thursday will face no further enquiries having been released.
Lawyers for American banker Eric Bellquist had confirmed he was the man arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, but added he had been ‘wrongly implicated in this matter’ and ‘categorically denies’ the accusation.
Police have now cleared him of any wrongdoing, and he will face no further action.
Officers have also renewed an appeal for witnesses to the random attack that has caused shock across the UK.
Harrowing CCTV footage released by Scotland Yard shows a male jogger pushing a female pedestrian into the path of a bus on Putney Bridge.
It is only the driver’s quick reflexes that prevents the 33-year-old woman from being run over by the double decker.
A Met Police spokesman said: ‘Enquiries continue to identity the jogger who pushed the female pedestrian into the road.’
The victim received minor injuries as a result of the incident on Friday May 5.
Police have described the jogger as a white man, aged early to mid 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair. He was wearing a light grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts.
Witnesses, or anyone who recognises the jogger, can contact Putney Safer Neighbourhood Team on 020 8785 8874 or 101.
