American investment banker cleared in London jogger attack

iStock/Thinkstock(LONDON) -- Metropolitan Police have cleared the American man arrested in connection with the case of a jogger who shoved a woman into the path of a London bus.

The Metropolitan Police force said Saturday that a man arrested last week has now been "eliminated from the investigation."

The 41-year-old American investment banker was apprehended Thursday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.

His lawyers later released a statement saying he wasn't involved and could prove he was in the United States at the time of the May 5 incident.

The arrest came after police released surveillance camera footage showing a jogger in shorts and T-shirt banging into a pedestrian, who tumbled in front of a double-decker bus. The bus swerved and then stopped to avoid hitting the woman.

Police said they are appealing for witnesses to the incident or anyone who recognizes the jogger to come forward.
