Suspect de­nies be­ing jog­ger who pushed woman into bus

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

LON­DON — Lawyers for an Amer­i­can in­vest­ment banker ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of push­ing a woman into the path of a Lon­don bus say he had noth­ing to do with it.

Law firm Dun­can Lewis So­lic­i­tors says its client “has been wrongly im­pli­cated” in the case of a jog­ger who shoved a woman into traf­fic. The firm said Fri­day he has “ir­refutable proof” he was in the United States at the time of the May 5 in­ci­dent. Sur­veil­lance cam­era footage shows a jog­ger in shorts and T-shirt bang­ing into a pedes­trian, who tum­bles in front of a dou­ble-decker bus. The bus stops just be­fore hit­ting the woman.

Po­lice ar­rested a 41-year-old man Thurs­day on sus­pi­cion of caus­ing griev­ous bod­ily harm. He was later re­leased pend­ing fur­ther in­quiries. Po­lice did not dis­close his name.
