Saab Magalona assaulted by drunk man in Pasig

Actress-blogger Saab Magalona, daughter of the late OPM icon Francis Magalona, was beaten up by a drunk guy in Pasig City last May 31.

In a report by GMA-7's "24 Oras," Saab attended a party organized by rock icon Ely Buendia at a hotel in Pasig City.

Saab, who is a contract artist of GMA-7, was reportedly beaten by a drunk gatecrasher who started the commotion.

"I do not wish to downplay nor overplay the events that happened so I will only tell you this: yes, I was punched on the head several times by an intoxicated man," she wrote on her blog Spell Saab.

"The unruly gatecrasher was part of a group of uninvited guests to an intimate and private birthday celebration. The celebrant and other guests were also attacked but fortunately a medical evaluation showed no major and permanent damage physically," she added.

"Despite the emotional trauma this has caused, I refuse to allow this incident to scar me. Instead, rest assured I will fight against violence — especially violence against women."

She also said she has already filed a complaint against her assailant.

Saab already underwent medico-legal and is feeling better now.
