Original Story

London's Metropolitan Police appealed for help Tuesday in looking for a jogger who allegedly pushed a woman in front of an oncoming bus on a busy west London street. The police released the surveillance camera footage of the incident, which took place May 5 on Putney Bridge in west London.

The CCTV footage of the incident showed a male jogger in shorts and T-shirt jogging past one man on the bridge moments before he knocked into a 33-year-old female pedestrian. The woman tumbled to the ground as her head and body fell on to the path of an oncoming double-decker bus. It is not clear if the man knocked into the woman intentionally.

However, the driver of the vehicle was prompt enough to immediately stop the bus to avoid hitting the woman. In the video, that had over 200,00 views at the time of publishing this story, it can be seen the man jogged on the sidewalk in the same direction as the flow of traffic.

In a statement, Sgt. Mat Knowles said the victim was put in "extreme danger" and was not hit by the bus, fortunately. He said she was saved "only due to the superb quick reactions of the bus driver."

"We are keen to speak to the jogger in the CCTV about what happened that morning," Knowles said. "We would urge him or anyone who recognizes him to get in touch with us as soon as possible."

Officers said they have been looking for a white man, probably in his 30s, who has brown eyes and short brown hair.

After the bus driver stopped the bus, the passengers disembarked to help the victim, police said. She did not suffer any major injuries, the police confirmed.

Police mentioned the male jogger came back after 15 minutes on the other side of the bridge, and when the victim tried to talk to him, he avoided her and "carried on jogging." The officials also asserted anyone with any kind of information about the jogger’s identity could call the Putney Safer Neighborhood Team at 020- 8785 8874.

Charges the man could face for such actions could vary in different countries and also in different states in the United States.

In the U.S., if someone intentionally and not accidentally pushes another person, he or she can be convicted of assault whether the person intended to injure the victim or not.

According to a U.S. website on the country's laws,, "it’s the intent to shove, regardless of the intent to cause the resulting injury that justifies a charge of assault. Generally, if the actions are accidental then the person cannot be convicted, rather the prosecutor has to then prove that the person "acted intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly."

If an assault leads to the victim not being injured seriously then it is considered as a misdemeanor. Punishment for "misdemeanor assault conviction" differs within the states in the U.S. The conviction could result in jail time, probation, community service, repayment to the victim for their medical bills or fines, according to the website.
