Vhong’s Controversial assault incident
The controversy of the assault case of Vhong Navarro had become very viral all over the industry during the time. He was a victim of an assault case. Going to the depth of the case, in the year 2014 on 22nd of January, he was badly beaten up and suffered serious injuries. According to him, a group of men attacked him inside a condominium. The incident occurred in Fort Bonifacio in Taguig.
The actor was called his female friend named Deniece Cornejo who had invited him to her house. After being beaten he was tied and blindfolded and threatened and attacked. To the surprise, the person behind all these nightmare incident was identified as Cedric Lee and was arrested.
Similarly, talking about the other controversies, Vhong Navarro was accused of attempted rape which he constantly denied. Deniece Cornejo accused him of the attempted rape case. However, Vhong admitted that after being assaulted and detained in Cornejo’s condominium unit, he was forced to admit of attempting to rape Cornejo in a police blotter at the Southern Police District Station.
Ultimately Vhong Navarro was not able to show enough evidence to prove that they violently forced him to sign a police blotter. But some investigation could show some CCTV footage (Closed-circuit television). And that footage lowered the chance to prove the Cornejo’s supposed rape. Due to these controversies and situations, Vhong could earn a lot of sympathy from people as well.
According to Carljoe Javier of GMA News Online:
“I understand that there are certain aspects of this case which raise possible opportunities for discussion. The most important point for discussion would be the way that we are now discussing rape. It’s disgusting how certain people have taken this as an opportunity to attempt to discredit rape victims as people who are just crying wolf. Many women are victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse and we must acknowledge this and attempt to prevent these terrible acts from happening. This is a truth regardless of the veracity of the claims of Deniece Cornejo.”
