The arrest of Cedric Lee was a joint effort by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (ISAFP).
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima confirmed the arrest of Cedric Lee and Simeon Raz. According to de Lima, “For the past few days, talaga namang tina track down na ng NBI yung kanilang mga location. More or less as of yesterday, we knew the general area kasi parang naging mobile sila. They hopped from area to another–from Quezon to Bicol, to Sorsogon and then finally sa Eastern Samar.”
Cedric Lee and Simeon Raz are among the seven accused in the highly publicized mauling of actor-host Vhong Navarro last January 22. The two were arrested for grave coercion and serious illegal detention. The Taguig Metropolitan Trial Court issued the warrant of arrest against Lee, his sister Bernice, model Deniece Cornejo, Raz, Jed Fernandez, Jose Paolo Calma, and Ferdinand Guerrero.
Reports say that Cedric Lee attempted to escape but was cornered by authorities.
De Lima said that she instructed the arresting team to immediately bring the two back to Manila.
