Raptors rookie Terence Davis was arrested and charged in New York Tuesday night for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, according to multiple media reports.

A police spokesperson told the Star that officers responded to a call about an assault at the Beekman hotel around 8:30 p.m. in the lower Manhattan area.
They said police learned upon arrival that Davis and his girlfriend had gotten into a verbal dispute, leading him to allegedly strike her in the eye and causing her quite a bit of pain.
Terence also allegedly took her phone and broke it, according to the Star.
Davis was arrested and charged with assault and criminal mischief following the incident, and the Toronto Raptors have yet to make a public statement about the news.
Davis signed a two-year deal with the team back in July of 2019 and was later named to the 2019–20 NBA All-Rookie Second Team by the NBA.
