The newly released CCTV still of the jogger was taken from a camera on a public bus that narrowly avoided colliding with the 33-year-old woman after the man appeared to knock her into the street, according to London's Metropolitan Police Service.

The still shows the suspect, whom police describe as a white man in his 30s with brown hair and brown eyes who was jogging across Putney Bridge in West London at the time of the incident. He's seen wearing a light gray T-shirt, dark blue shorts and gray sneakers.

The Metropolitan Police Service first released CCTV video of the May incident last month.

In the video, a man jogs on the sidewalk in the same direction as the flow of traffic. As the jogger approaches a woman walking in the opposite direction, he appears to shove her aside, pushing her into the street and forcing the driver of the No. 430 bus to swerve to avoid hitting her.

The woman suffered minor injuries in the incident, police said.

About 15 minutes later, the jogger came back the other way across Putney Bridge. The victim tried to speak to the man but he didn't acknowledge her and continued to jog toward the north side of the River Thames, police said.

Two 41-year-old men were arrested in August in connection with the investigation. Both have been released without further action, police said.

Police have asked witnesses or anyone who may recognize the jogger seen in the CCTV video and new image to contact them.

"Images of this alarming incident have been circulated widely and we continue to work through the information received to identify the man responsible," Metropolitan Police Det. Sgt. Chris Griffith, the investigating officer from Wandsworth, said in a statement Wednesday. "We are grateful to those who have assisted so far. However, I am also appealing for anyone who has given just a name to contact police or Crimestoppers again with as much information as possible so we can fully follow up those lines of inquiry."

    It looks like DB Cooper. Scotland Yard is going to solve both crimes when they find this guy.

    Don't they have software that can clean pictures like this up? By now they should have a perfect 3D model of his head lit by spotlights.

    It's strange.. she wasn't even "in the way". He had to veer a little toward her to knock her over. This guy isn't just a angry jogger.. he's got women problems or something deeper going on in his head. And he should be punished severely.

    He looks like a generic guy. If he doesn't turn himself in, they're never going to find him.

    As a long-time jogger myself, I understand the jogger's apparent frustration at shoving aside an pedestrian. However, in my experiences, I always shifted my position, since I was moving at a faster clip than a pedestrian does. It just seemed natural that I was the one who should move, not the other way around. Maybe British etiquette is different?

    Oops... I almost forgot. I won't be able to make it, fellas. Veronica and I are trying this new fad called, uh, jogging. I believe it's 'jogging' or 'yogging.' it might be a soft j. I'm not sure but apparently you just run for an extended period of time! It's supposed to be wild.
