Wrong man arrested in United Kingdom jogger-rage case

13 August 2017

The 33-year-old victim was walking across Putney Bridge at about 7.40am on 5 May, when the incident occurred.

Eric Bellquist, 41, was arrested by the Metropolitan police on Thursday (10 August) on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm following the incident, which took place on Putney Bridge in south-west London on 5 May this year.

His lawyers released a statement, after their client was cleared, saying the man could prove he was in the United States when the incident occurred on May 5.

A man who was arrested after a woman was shoved into the path of a London bus has been released and eliminated as a suspect in the incident, the police said on Saturday.

Police are still searching for the jogger captured pushing the woman into the street.

Backup Ryan Mallett has stepped in as the Ravens' first-team quarterback with Flacco out. The team said his "progress from a back issue is good".

The video, which was released on Monday, shows the bus swerving to avoid the woman and stop so that people could get out and help her back up.

Bellquist, who works for London-based private equity firm Hutton Collins Partners, was questioned but not officially charged during his arrest and was later released. Mat Knowles, the investigating officer from the Putney Safer Neighborhood Team, said in a statement.

According to CBS News, the woman encountered the man again about 15 minutes later, after people had rushed to check on her wellbeing.

The jogger is described as a white man, aged in his early- to mid-30s, with brown eyes and short brown hair.

The Met said he will face no further action. He was wearing a grey t-shirt and dark blue shorts.
