Limpopo - Mark Scott-Crossley, who allegedly drove over a man in an apparent racist attack, is expected to make his first appearance in the Hoedspruit Magistrate's Court on Friday on a charge of attempted murder.

Scott-Crossley handed himself over to police in Pretoria on Wednesday, almost a month after a warrant of arrest was issued for him on December 21.

In December News24 reported that Silence Mabunda, 37, had opened a case against Scott-Crossley after he grabbed and smashed Mabunda's cellphone, before allegedly driving over him.

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

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

He was released on parole in 2008.
