The unidentified man was taken to a south London police station and was released, according to the Daily Mail.

Earlier this week, police released surveillance camera footage of the May 5 incident on Putney Bridge.

It shows a jogger in shorts and T-shirt banging into a pedestrian, who tumbles in front of a double-decker bus. The bus stopping just before hitting the woman, who suffered minor injuries.

Police say Thursday's arrest followed a "good response" from the public to the video.
