Sickening footage has emerged of a woman being PUSHED in front of a moving bus by a jogger who appears to perform the act with intent

CCTV footage has captured the moment a jogger seems to push an innocent member of the public into the path of an oncoming bus in the capital.

The 33-year-old victim can be seen walking across Putney Bridge when the runner appeared to shove her into the road.

A double-decker bus narrowly avoided hitting her, with the driver clearly alert to their surrounding and able to act rapidly to not run the lady over. Seconds later, passengers disembarked and rushed to the her aid.

The male jogger made his way back across the bridge about 15 minutes later and although the victim tried to speak to him about what happened, he did not acknowledge her and continued his run.

According to the Met Police, the woman suffered minor injuries in the incident, which happened at about 7.40am in May – although the footage has only just gone public.

The jogger has been described as a white man with brown eyes and short brown hair who is in his early to mid-30s – and officers are urging anyone who recognises him to get in touch.

Sergeant Mat Knowles said: “The victim was put in extreme danger when she was knocked into the road. It was only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver that she was not hit by the vehicle.

“We are keen to speak to the jogger in the CCTV about what happened that morning. We would urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information or any witnesses are asked to call Putney Safer Neighbourhood Team on 020 8785 8874 or 101.
