Detectives investigating the assault of a woman who was pushed in front of a London bus by a jogger arrested a man in Aberdeen then released him without charge.

Police confirmed the 49 year-old man was arrested on Thursday in connection with the incident and released with no further action later the same day.

The woman was pushed in front of the number 430 bus which narrowly avoided hitting her as she fell into its path on Putney Bridge, south west London, on May 5.

About 15 minutes after the incident, which happened around 7.40am, the jogger came back the other way across the bridge.

The 33-year-old victim tried to speak to him but he did not acknowledge her and carried on jogging towards the north side of the river.

The jogger is described as a white man, aged in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

He was wearing a light grey T-shirt and dark blue shorts with grey trainers.

Two men, both aged 41, have previously been arrested in connection with the investigation but were released without further action.

Detective Sergeant Chris Griffith, the officer leading the investigation, said: "We are continuing to investigate this incident and follow up leads as and when we receive new information about possible suspects.

"We are grateful to those who have called in so far.

"I am also appealing for anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV stills, or with any information that might assist the investigation to contact police or Crimestoppers."
