Banker wrongly blamed for Putney push gets bodyguards


Bellquist pictured this week after he was arrested and released without charge for the incident
Eric Bellquist was 5,000 miles away on holiday in California at the time of the attack on London’s Putney Bridge on May 5 but police still held him for six hours before releasing him on bail on Thursday.
Nor did they check publicly available records of Eric Bellquist’s running routes on a website which do not show any runs in which he has crossed Putney Bridge.
Asked whether the force would be issuing an apology to Mr Bellquist, a spokesman said last night: ‘There were reasonable grounds to arrest the man in connection with this offence.
He was woken up by the police, dragged out of his house and thrown into a cell for hours.
He is very worried about his reputation and deserves an immediate apology.’
Police have renewed their appeals for people who might recognise the attacker from CCTV footage to come forward.
