CCTV showed the bus swerving as the 33-year-old woman fell into its path, narrowly avoiding her on Friday May 5 at around 7.40am.

The victim, who suffered minor injuries, was ignored by the runner some 15 minutes later as he ran past her on the bridge going the other way.

The arrest was made following a "good response" from a public appeal to catch the suspect, police said.

Officers continue to appeal for witnesses.
