Detectives have released a further CCTV image as they continue to appeal for the public's assistance in identifying a man who knocked a woman into the path of a bus on Putney Bridge.

At about 07:40hrs on 5 May, the 33-year-old victim was walking across Putney Bridge when a male jogger pushed her. He knocked her into the road and into the path of an oncoming bus.

The CCTV still of the jogger is taken from the Number 430 bus which narrowly avoided the woman.

About 15 minutes after the incident, the jogger came back the other way across the bridge. The 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.

Officers continue to appeal for witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognises the jogger pictured on CCTV to get in touch.

Detective Sergeant Chris Griffith of Wandsworth CID said: "Images of this alarming incident have been circulated widely and we continue to work through the information received to identify the man responsible.

"We are grateful to those who have assisted so far. However, I am also appealing for anyone who has given just a name to contact police or Crimestoppers again with as much information as possible so we can fully follow up those lines of enquiry."

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 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org.

= Two 41-year-old men, ('A' and 'B'), have been arrested in connection with the investigation. 'A' was arrested on 10 August, and 'B' was arrested on 12 August. Both have been released without further action.
