Insane jogger shockingly pushes woman in front of bus in London
In what appears to be a shocking event that unfolded in London, CCTV camera captured footage of a man who appeared to be actually pushing a woman in front of a bus. In the video from a CCTV installation on Putney bridge southwest London, it clearly shows a jogger pushing a woman onto the road and risking her life.
Even more appalling was what happened after that. The jogger can be seen returning from the opposite direction just 15 minutes later. When the woman can be seen confronting him because of the action that almost caused her death, he just does not acknowledge her.
1 Investigation commenced by police after seeing the video
When the video surfaced, London police began an investigation to identify the culprit. A police spokesman Sergeant Matt Knowles said that the victim’s life was out into grievous danger after being knocked down onto the road on Putney Bridge, It was only because of the quick thinking and reflexes of the bus drives that she missed being hit by the vehicle.
2 Police identify one suspect
One of the suspects arrested by the police was Eric Bellquist a financial executive working at Hutton Collins Partners. Bellquist was taken to South London Police for questioning in connection with the incident but was later released pending enquiry. Although the incident happened in May, the video itself was only released later this week. The man in the video dressed in light grey T-Shirt and blue shorts can be seen running into the 33-year-old woman and knocking her into the path of an oncoming bus. The bus then swerves to avoid hitting her but she did suffer minor injuries.
3 A tragic accident averted by the timely action of the bus driver
According to Bellquist’s lawyer, Duncan Lewis, The financial executive was travelling to the United States at the time the crime was committed and hence could not be held accountable for the crime. Although Evidence to the effect was not released absolving Bellquist of the crime.
Bellquist not only works as a financial executive at Hutton Collins. He is also a board member of two restaurants in which Hutton Colins has invested in. While it may not have been established that Bellquist was indeed the jogger pushing a woman onto the road, the crime itself is a dastardly act and criminal in every way. The bus driver deserves mention as a hero who avoided a tragic result of the incident. The female victim was unavailable to comment. Watch the video and see for yourself.
