JOHANNESBURG - A white man accused of assaulting a black man at Wonderboom Airport in Pretoria is expected to appear in court on Friday.

Police are still searching for his alleged accomplice and are investigating a case of assault and crimen injuria after a video surfaced showing two white men assaulting a black man.

One of the men has been arrested and will be appearing in a Pretoria court.

Police officers suspect that the attack was racially motivated.
