Jogger who pushed London woman 'maybe had a bad day,' bus driver says

#

The driver of a London bus who witnessed a jogger shove a woman in front of his bus last May is speaking out about the incident.

“Maybe he had a bad day, and the first lady he saw in his way just decided to push her?” Oliver Salbis told Sky News, referring to the jogger.

He said he didn’t realize how close the woman was to his bus until after watching surveillance video. A man can be seen jogging on Putney Bridge on May 5 in London and then suddenly pushing a woman into the bus lane.

Salbis said he stopped the bus to see if the woman was hurt. Although she was in shock and crying, he said he was relieved to see that she could move.

“I thought everything for her was OK, so I just went to the garage and reported the incident to my managers,” Salbis said.

He has not spoken to the victim but hopes the individual who pushed her is held accountable.

Police still not have found the jogger. Two men were arrested in August but later released without further action, according to police. Police have not named the victim.

    Why didn't he push that man he jogged past? You know this was no accident because he actually jogged right over to her and pushed her. What a coward.

    I find it odd that after all this time, they still can not find this jogger. He was clearly seen in the video, yet no one can ID the guy? I bet his family (if any) are keeping mum and the guy is doing his best to remain anonymous as possible. He knows he will be going to jail.

    I bet he doesn't wear those clothes anymore.

    It's 2018, might want to invest in some High Definition already.
    Can't tell me there are no cameras any where at either end of the bridge. Give me a break. They have cameras everywhere. So who are they protecting, the public? The only ones with enough balls to return a second time are extremists and Law enforcement.

    I've had bad days. I don't recall ever using that as an excuse to push someone down, much less in front of a bus.
