The Guardian - - NEWS - Damien Gayle and agen­cies

Po­lice have re­leased a new im­age of the sus­pect wanted for the as­sault of a woman pushed in front of a Lon­don bus and nearly killed on Put­ney Bridge.

The CCTV still of the jog­ger was taken from a cam­era on­board the num­ber 430 bus that only avoided col­lid­ing with the woman’s head thanks to the quick re­ac­tions of its driver. Video footage of the in­ci­dent on 5 May sparked out­rage when it was pub­lished.

Po­lice con­tinue to ap­peal for wit­nesses and for any­one who knows the sus­pect to come for­ward. They de­scribe him as a white man in his 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call de­tec­tives from Wandsworth CID on 020 3276 2606 or via 101, or tweet MetCC. In­for­ma­tion can also be re­ported anony­mously to Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
