Vhong Navarro thanked everyone who played a part in the arrest of businessman Cedric Lee.
Lee is one of the 7 accused in the controversial mauling of the actor.
He expressed his gratitude to Justice Secretary Leila De Lima, the Department of Justice, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), and the Philippine National Police.
Lee was arrested by the NBI on Saturday morning, along with another suspect, Simeon Raz.
Cedric was arrested for the criminal charges of grave coercion and serious illegal detention, which is a non-bailable offense, in connection with the January 22 incident that left Navarro with serious injuries.
