Eric Bellquist, a partner at Hutton Collins & Co., was dismissed by Metropolitan Police as the jogger who pushed a woman into the path of a London bus.

The man arrested on Thursday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm was released with no further action, and is no longer part of the investigation, the police said in a statement Saturday. They added that their inquiries continue and appealed to the public for assistance.

The 41-year-old private-equity specialist had been arrested in connection with the May 5 incident on Putney Bridge over the Thames River. Bellquist was out of the country when the assault occurred, his lawyer said on Friday.

Pictures from closed-circuit cameras showing a jogger on the south London Bridge during rush hour pushing a 33-year-old woman into the road were widely shared by British media in a bid to track down the culprit. Police said they arrested a suspect at a property in the Chelsea area, taken to a south London station and later released.
