US Investment Banker Arrested After London Woman Shoved In Front Of Bus

A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following police enquiries at an address in the Chelsea area on the morning of Thursday, August 10. The private-equity specialist was out of the country when the assault occurred, his lawyer said.

Metropolitan Police today released the city banker, saying they had "eliminated him from the investigation".

The woman only suffered minor injuries but she was put in "extreme danger", police stated. The law firm representing Bellquist later confirmed on Friday that he was the man arrested, adding that he wasn't the person who'd attacked the woman on Putney Bridge.

On Friday, Eric Bellquist released a statement through his lawyers saying he had "irrefutable proof" he was in the United States at the time.

Sergeant Mat Knowles says it is thanks to the "superb quick reactions of the bus driver" that she was not hit.

Surveillance video from the May 5 incident showed the male jogger pushing the woman into the road shortly after 7:30 a.m.

CCTV footage showed how the victim, a 33-year-old woman, was walking across Putney Bridge when a runner knocked her into the road.

After the May 5 incident, the bus stopped, while passengers climbed off to help the woman.

However, around 15 minutes later, the same jogger returned, passing her again on the bridge and running in the other direction.

Cops have now made a renewed appeal for witnesses. He was wearing a grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts.
