Ferdinand Guerrero Arrested, Denies Mauling Vhong NavarroA year after Vhong Navarro was allegedly mauled by Cedric Lee, et al, inside the condominium unit of model Deniece Cornejo, one of the suspects, Ferdinand Guerrero, was arrested.
The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) arrested Ferdinand inside a condo unit in Makati City after almost a year of hiding.
He faces cases of serious illegal detention and grave coercion. Two more suspects--JP Calma and Jed Fernandez--in the mauling of Vhong are at large.
Cedric, Bernice Lee, Deniece and Simeon Raz are currently out on bail.
During an interview, Ferdinand admitted that he was one of the people in the video footage caught by CCTVs of the condominium building where the alleged mauling of Vhong happened.
However, Ferdinand denied he physically assaulted the "It's Showtime" host. He said that what happened to Vhong was unfortunate, and they are deeply sorry that he was hurt.
Ferdinand admitted it was not right, and it has been dealt with accordingly because Cedric is even willing to apologize for what happened to him.
He said they see Vhong with bodyguards, afraid for his life. Ferdinand said they don't him to die and in fact, wants him to live a long life. However, justice must be served for what Vhong did to Deniece.
Vhong knows what he did, Ferdinand said, but he will let the court decide. "Rape is rape is rape."
"We want you to think about what you did, because you know what you did." Ferdinand said they are not going to do anything stupid, and they are not going to take justice into their own hands.
Hopefully, Vhong will think about what he did because these women, who are accusing Vhong of rape, are not lying. The rape cases filed by at least three women against Vhong were all dismissed.
