A man arrested by police hunting a jogger who knocked a woman into the path of a bus in London has been released with no further action.

Law firm Duncan Lewis Solicitors says its client, Eric Bellquist, "has been wrongly implicated" in the case of a jogger who shoved a woman into traffic. According to CBS News, the woman encountered the man again about 15 minutes later, after people had rushed to check on her wellbeing.

Eric Bellquist's attorney says he was in the USA at the time of the incident in May.

In this image taken from surveillance camera video released by London's Metropolitan Police on Tuesday Aug. 8, 2017 shows a male jogger, right, after colliding into a woman who fell into the road on Putney Bridge in London.

In a statement police said: "Inquiries continue to identity the jogger who pushed the female pedestrian into the road".

The victim, a 33-year-old woman, tried to speak to him however he did not acknowledge her.

Bellquist's lawyers said he had irrefutable proof that he was in the U.S. at the time of the incident, which happened on Putney Bridge in west London on 5 May.

'Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation'. She said that she saw the same man jogging back across the bridge, but he ignored her calls and jogged away.

The victim received minor injuries as a result of the incident on Friday May 5.

"He is pleased to have been able to react the way he did and that there was no serious injury to the lady".
