JOHANNESBURG - A second man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly spray painting a man's entire body during an argument.

Last week, Bilaz Asan was beaten with tools and axes, stripped naked and covered in white enamel paint.

Twenty-eight-year-old Shadrack Naidoo appeared in court yesterday and is expected back in the dock with his fellow accused, Avikar Lutchman, later this month.

The police's Thulane Zwane said, "The victim was at his friend's house fixing a car when the two suspects approached him."
