NEW YORK (AP) - Toronto Raptors rookie Terence Davis was arrested in New York on charges of assaulting a woman and criminal mischief, police said Wednesday.

The incident occurred Tuesday night at a luxury high-rise in midtown Manhattan, where a 20-year-old woman told police she went to visit her boyfriend and the two got into a verbal dispute, a police spokeswoman said.

Davis then hit the woman in the face, hurting her eye, and grabbed her phone and broke its screen, Detective Sophia Mason said in a statement.

Davis was awaiting arraignment, and there was no immediate word on whether he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.

The Raptors said they were aware of reports about the incident and were gathering more information.
