Police in Burlington City may have found the man responsible for pushing a fisherman into the Delaware River.

They are questioning a person of interest seen in a surveillance video.

They believe he shoved the unassuming 79-year-old victim into the water earlier this week.

Police were looking to get the suspect before he injured anyone else.

A good samaritan jumped in to rescue the victim, who is recovering from a broken shoulder.
