Vhong Navarro denies rape allegations

Television personality Vhong Navarro strongly denied allegations that he tried to rape a 22 year-old female student. Speaking to Buzz ng Bayan‘s Boy Abunda from his hospital bed, Navarro insisted that his assailants tried to extort two million pesos from him.

In his first interview since news of the assault against him became public Friday night, Navarro repeatedly expressed fear for his and his family’s safety. “Binaboy nila ako, tinakot nila ako. Papatayin daw nila ako, mga anak ko, mga magulang ko,” he told Abunda.

He said he is breaking his silence to seek justice against those who attacked him. “Nagsasalita ako dahil pwedeng maulit ito. Kung nagawa nila ito sa akin, pwede nila itong gawin sa mga maliliit na tao,” the comedian said.

In an earlier statement, Navarro’s manager Chito Rono said that the comedian visited a female friend in a condominium unit at The Fort, Taguig City on Wednesday night. The woman, who Navarro only identified as “Denise,” claimed in a blotter report that the the comedian tried to rape her and that her friends attacked him upon witnessing the alleged crime. GMA News uncovered this angle Saturday night.

Navarro claimed that he has known “Denise” for two years already although they only met last January 17. He did not clarify though how they met. One thing he admitted is that he became physically intimate with her, short of having sex. “Nagpakita siya ng motibo sa akin. May nangyari sa amin, but there’s no sexual intercourse,” he said.

He said they agreed to meet again late evening of January 22. Instead of waiting for her at the lobby of the condominium, Navarro went straight to Denise’s unit. The girl then told her: ‘Binigla mo ako. Hindi pa ako nakakapaglinis.’ After she walked out of the room, a guy Navarro identified as Cedric Lee poked a gun on him. Five other guys eventually appeared side-by-side with ‘Cedric.’
