It’s one thing to accidentally bump into someone while jogging past them, but it’s another thing entirely to push them into oncoming traffic. But that’s what this CCTV footage released by the British police shows, and it’s actually pretty haunting.
The man, who was jogging down the sidewalk, passed several people during his run, the video shows. But as he approached a woman, he veered toward her and pushed her in front of a bus, which was just barely able to swerve out of the way in time.
While the woman survived, London police are searching for the suspect, as his actions were potentially fatal. Though the video was taken last Friday, they have yet to identify the man or understand why he may have done what he did.
“We are keen to speak to the jogger in the CCTV about what happened that morning,” said Sergeant Mat Knowles, the investigating officer from Putney Safer Neighbourhood Team. “We would urge him or anyone who recognises him to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”
