The brute who was seen shoving a 33-year-old woman into the path of a double decker bus in London has been arrested and identified as American millionaire investment banker Eric Bellquist, 41.



Police say Bellquist is the psycho seen on CCTV video footage shoving a woman into the path of an oncoming double decker bus on London’s Putney Bridge around 7:40 a.m. on May 5.

Bellquist, who was arrested Tuesday, has been dubbed the “Putnney Bridge Pusher” by the British press. But he claims his arrest is a case of mistaken identity and that he wasn’t even in London at the time of the incident.

The video shows a white male jogger run past a man on the West London bridge. As the jogger approached a woman, he reached out with both hands and shoved the woman, who fell backwards into the path of a double decker bus. The quick-thinking bus driver swerved at the last second, narrowly avoiding running over the woman. She suffered minor injuries in the attack.

Police say the jogger ran away but he returned to the scene 15 minutes later. The woman recognized him and tried to talk to him but he ignored her.
“By this time the members of the public who had helped the woman were gone and she tried to talk to him as he ran past her but he just ignored her,” said Sgt. Mat Knowles.

A law firm representing Bellquist on behalf of his London-based investment firm Hutton Collins, issued a statement on Thursday saying he was in the U.S. at the time of the assault.
The statement read:
“Our client has been wrongly implicated in this matter; he categorically denies being the individual concerned and has irrefutable proof that he was in the United States at the time of the incident. Consequently we expect a swift resolution to this wholly untrue allegation.”

Bellquist claims to have “irrefutable proof” that he was in America when the woman was shoved on the bridge. He lives in the upscale neighborhood of Chelsea, West London. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder, according to the Daily Mail UK.
The bus driver is hailed as a hero by local residents, but he insists he was only doing his job.

“He is pleased to have been able to react the way he did and that there was no serious injury to the lady,” a spokesman for bus operators Go Ahead London told 5 News.
Bellquist was released from jail on Tuesday. He continues to maintain his innocence.
