A man arrested in London on suspicion of pushing a woman into the path of an oncoming bus while out jogging has been identified as a partner at a London-based private equity firm, reports The Guardian,.

CCTV footage released shows a man barging into a woman, knocking her into the road on the east side of Putney Bridge and forcing a bus to swerve to avoid her.

 Howeverm Eric Bellquist has denied he was the jogger caught on CCTV shoving a woman into the road on Putney Bridge, south-west London – with his lawyers stating he has “irrefutable proof” he was in the US at the time of the incident.

Bellquist currently works for Hutton Collins Partners, a private equity firm and sits on the boards of the restaurant chains as a non-executive director. He previously worked for the failed US investment bank Lehman Brothers.

The Metropolitan police said on Thursday they had arrested a man in Chelsea on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm. He was later released on bail.

In a statement on behalf of Bellquist, his lawyers, Duncan Lewis solicitors, said: “This statement is issued in relation to our client Mr Eric Bellquist, who was arrested yesterday in relation to an assault that took place between a male jogger and a female pedestrian on 5 May 2017 on Putney Bridge, London.

“Our client has been wrongly implicated in this matter; he categorically denies being the individual concerned and has irrefutable proof that he was in the United States at the time of the incident. Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation.”
