Byron board member says he is "wrongly implicated" in Putney Bridge incident

Arrest made after hunt for jogger who 'pushed' woman into path of bus on Putney Bridge

Video footage from May 5 showed a male jogger knocking the 33-year-old woman onto the road as she walked across Putney Bridge on the River Thames.

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.

Metropolitan Police today released the city banker, saying they had "eliminated him from the investigation". Duncan Lewis solicitors issued a statement on Twitter claiming Bellquist was not in Britain when the attack happened in May.

Bellquist's profile on Hutton Collins Partners's website is still up.

I thought he was really unselfish for a player making his debut. "You've seen how they linked up, and good players can. He made his Leicester City debut in the team's final pre-season game against German club Borussia Monchengladbach .

The arrest came after police released surveillance camera footage showing a jogger in shorts and T-shirt banging into a pedestrian, who tumbled in front of a double-decker bus.

The bus stopped and passengers tended to the woman following the incident at about 7.40am on May 5. After passing a man in a suit, he seems to abruptly shove another pedestrian, unprompted, as a bus approaches from behind him, The Washington Post reports. "It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle", said Sgt.

Some 15 minutes later, the suspect passed his victim again on the bridge, going the other way.

Officers are continuing to appeal for any witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognises the jogger in the CCTV to get in touch.
