Scott-Cross­ley sought over as­sault

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - Masego Panyane

THE search for a wit­ness to an ap­par­ent racially fu­elled as­sault of a 37-year-old man is un­der way.

Mark Scott-Cross­ley be­came in­fa­mous in 2004 for throw­ing an em­ployee into a lion en­clo­sure in a racist at­tack.

Now Scott-Cross­ley is be­lieved to have in­for­ma­tion on the as­sault of an­other man in Lim­popo last month.

It is al­leged the vic­tim had his cell­phone smashed on the ground, and was dragged be­hind a bakkie, which was also driven over his legs re­peat­edly.

Lim­popo po­lice said they had a war­rant for Scott-Cross­ley’s ar­rest.

“We are still in the process of track­ing down Scott-Cross­ley. We have the con­tact de­tails of his lawyer but we are yet to speak to him,” Bri­gadier Mot­lafela Mo­japelo said.

Wit­nesses claimed the at­tacker told the vic­tim that only whites were al­lowed to an­swer phones, af­ter smash­ing the man’s de­vice to the ground. They also al­leged the man was later knocked down and driven over. –
