Law enforcement agencies in the New York city, US have arrested Toronto Raptors rookie Terence Davis on charges of assaulting a woman and criminal mischief, police said.
Davis while at a luxury high-rise in midtown Manhattan, allegedly assaulted a 20-year-old woman in the face, hurting her eye, and grabbed her phone and broke its screen, Detective Sophia Mason said in a statement.
The incident occurred Tuesday night. The woman told police she went to visit her boyfriend and the two got into a verbal dispute, a police spokeswoman said.
The Raptors said they were aware of reports about the incident and were gathering more information. Davis, a 23-year-old guard, played college basketball at Mississippi before joining the Raptors as an undrafted free agent before the start of the 2019-20 season. He averaged 7.5 points per game and was named to the league’s All-Rookie Second Team.
