Brief answer:
For a record, THERE IS NO ACTUAL CCTV FOOTAGE on the attacked of group of men.

Brief case story: What happen?

Last Friday it was reported that Vhong was being mauled, tied, threaten, and attacked by group of men with no apparent reason inside the premises in condo unit on last January 22 at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.

In a statement last Friday, Chito Rono, Navarro's manager, said that he was actually invited by a certain female friend(did not reveal her name) to visit her in the condo unit. (why? it did not reveal too).

Then, six men allegedly blindfolded Navarro and beat him up. It was also stated that Navarro was threatened. Rono said they have not found out the reason yet for the attacked.

In separate news, it was reported that this female friend made a police blotter of attempted rape but later she did not continue to file.
