LONDON — 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.
The man, Eric Bellquist, a 41-year-old American investment banker, was taken into custody on Thursday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm after the police published a video of the violent encounter. The authorities asked the public to help identify the jogger, who was filmed shoving the woman in front of a bus on Putney Bridge. The woman suffered minor injuries.
Mr. Bellquist denied being the man in the video, and his lawyers released a statement saying that their client had been wrongly implicated and that there was “irrefutable proof” that he was in the United States during the time of the incident, which took place on May 5.
The Metropolitan Police said on Saturday that the search for the jogger was continuing after a “good response” from the public.
