Third rape complaint filed vs. Vhong Navarro

A third rape complaint has been filed against TV host-actor Vhong Navarro, this time by a stuntwoman who once worked with him, a report on GMA News TV's “Quick Response Team” said Friday.

The complaint was filed Thursday with the Quezon City Prosecutor's Office, the report said.

Citing the victim's affidavit, the report said the alleged incident happened in September 2009 inside a sports utility vehicle (SUV). The victim, who was not identified, said Navarro only stopped with his sexual assault when she threatened to hurt him.

Navarro was first slapped with a rape complaint by model Deniece Cornejo in January. Days later, in February, beauty contestant Roxanne Acosta Cabanero also filed a similar complaint against the actor.

Navarro's counsel, lawyer Alma Mallonga, said they have yet to receive a copy of the third complaint, but added they are ready to file a counter-affidavit,

“The new complaint for rape against Vhong is not unexpected. We expect more, especially as the DOJ nears resolution of the complaint for non-bailable crime of Serious Illegal Detention filed by Vhong against Cedric, Deniece and company,” Mallonga said in a text message sent to GMA News.

Mallonga was referring to Cedric Lee, Deniece Cornejo and several others who are facing charges in connection with the mauling incident on Navarro in late January.

“We will wait for the complaint and respond. We will follow the process, knowing full well that Vhong will be vindicated,” Mallonga added. -- GMA News
