Johannesburg – Mark Scott-Crossley, who was believed to have fled Limpopo after an alleged racist attack, handed himself over to police on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said Crossley had handed himself over in Pretoria.

Earlier this month, Mojapelo said a warrant of arrest had been issued on December 21 for Scott-Crossley.

He is facing a charge of attempted murder.

In December, News24 reported that Silence Mabunda, 37, a general worker, had opened a case against Scott-Crossley after he grabbed and smashed Mbunda's cellphone, before allegedly driving over him in an apparent racist attack.

Mabunda, an employee at the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, said Scott-Crossley had attacked him at a shop in Hoedspruit while he was buying airtime there in December.

Scott-Crossley is expected to appear in the Hoedspruit Magistrate’s Court on Friday. 

Scott-Crossley made international headlines in 2004 when he was tried and convicted for the murder of a worker who he threw into a lion enclosure.

He was released on parole in 2008.
