50-year-old man arrested in London for pushing a woman in front of an incoming bus back in May. The scary scene was caught on video, including the bus driver swerving frantically at the last second, narrowly missing the woman. The police have identified and arrested the suspect, but have not yet made his name available to the public.

While the attack occurred three months ago, Metro Police released the disturbing surveillance footage just recently as they had no leads on finding the man who nearly caused the death of the woman who so narrowly avoided tragedy. The response to the footage release was evidently quite good.
The suspect, who is accused of causing the woman “grievous bodily harm,” was arrested in the upscale Chelsea neighborhood on Thursday. Police say he has been released but remains under investigation.

The video shows the 33-year-old victim, whose name has not been released, walking across the Putney Bridge in west London at about 7:40 a.m., when a man wearing a gray T-shirt and running shorts comes running toward her.
The incident happens quickly and, based on the grainy footage, does not appear to be provoked. The man comes up to her and swiftly sends her flying into the road, and the oncoming bus quickly maneuvers to avoid her.
“The bus stopped, and some passengers got off and rushed to the victim’s aid. She received minor injuries from the incident,” police say.

“The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road,” Sgt. Mat Knowles, a police spokesman, The Blot “It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle.”
The same jogger returned about 15 minutes later, according to police, when he “came the other way across the bridge.” The police add: “The victim tried to speak to him, but he did not acknowledge her and carried on jogging.”
