London police have released a man they arrested for allegedly pushing a woman into the path of an oncoming bus in London earlier this week.

The police say they will take no further action against the 41-year-old man and has been released without charge.

Police have not named the person they arrested, but lawyers for the man who happen to be a banker came forward on Friday to say his client had “irrefutable proof” that he was in the United States at the time.

The incident’s video shows a male jogger knocking a 33-year-old woman into the road as she walked across Putney Bridge in west London, where few seconds later a bus is seen swerving out of the way, and missing the woman who suffered minor injuries.

About 15 minutes later, the jogger came back. The woman tried to speak with him, but he ignored her and kept running.

Officers investigating the incident have renewed their appeal for information on the jogger, who they describe as a white man, aged in his early to mid 30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.
