Police have served a fresh warrant to two men in Niigata Prefecture for allegedly applying a hot chili sauce to the genitals of a teenage boy, local police said.

Construction workers Takeru Yoshizawa, 26, and Jo Yuki, 22, are suspected of applying one of the U.S.-made Death Sauce varieties to the teen’s private parts and chest, after forcing him to take off his clothes and tying him to a streetlight in June, the police said.
