    An arrest has been made after a search for the jogger who knocked a woman into the path of a bus in London, British police said Thursday.

    The 41-year-old was arrested Thursday on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm, London's Metropolitan Police force said.

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