According to Vhong Navarro, who hogged the headlines after being mauled inside a condominium in Bonifacio Global City, the attacker was a certain “Cedric Lee,” a businessman.
Navarro said in a television interview that during the attack Lee introduced himself while several men were throwing blows to his head and body.
Aside from Navarro’s mauling incident, Lee was also accused of attacking businessman and ex-athlete David Bunevacz.
According to an article of the Philippine Daily INQUIRER dated Jan. 18, 2008, Lee and his cohorts identified as Tyrone Ong, Loiue Kau, Chito Ho and Dominquie Sytini beat up Bunevacz, their former business partner, and seized the latter’s Porsche, expensive watch and cellular phone.
