According to Navarro's manager and film director Chito Rono given to ABS-CBN News on Friday, the comedian was invited by a female friend to visit her in her condominium unit.
Several men allegedly blindfolded Navarro and beat him up when he got in the premises of the condominium.
Here is Rono's full statement:
"Si Vhong Navarro ay naimbitihan sa isang condominium unit sa Fort ng isang kaibigang babae. At sa di pa malamang kadahilanan, siya ay piniringan, pinagtulungang bugbugin, ginapos, tinakot, at hinihingan ng pera ng isang grupo ng kalalakihan noong January 22, Miyerkules.
"Si Vhong ay kasalukuyang nagpapagaling at mawawala ng pansamantala sa 'It's Showtime' at iba pa niyang proyekto."
Navarro was threatened and victim of extortion but still the reason for the attack is yet unknown.
