Dallas Police Looking For Own Officer After Alleged Domestic Assault
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas police officers are looking for one of their own after he allegedly beat his girlfriend on more than one occasion.
Police are looking for Officer Rashad Davis, who has reportedly had violence issues over the past weeks.
In a press release issued Wednesday morning, officials with the Dallas Police Department said Officer Davis was in fact arrested on December 6. At that time, he was charged with Assault (Family Violence) against his live-in girlfriend and placed on administrative leave. Officials said he was not to return to work until both the criminal and administrative investigations were complete.
While on leave; Davis was involved in another disturbance with his girlfriend and as a result a second Assault (Family Violence) charge was filed.
According to police, as the investigation of Davis progressed there were additional allegations made from previous incidents, leading police to filed a third charge, of Aggravated Assault (Family Violence), against Davis and issue a warrant for his arrest.
Several Dallas officers went to Davis’ apartment at about 10 p.m. Tuesday to serve the warrant.
Residents of the apartment complex that police raided say officers broke down Davis’ door to get inside, but he was not home.
The responding officers did collect some of Davis’ police gear, including pants, shirts, a hat, and 52 bullets. A police report says those items were placed into “protective custody” in the department’s property room.
The officers on the scene told witnesses that if Davis showed up at the apartment complex they should call 911 and are asking that anyone else who knows of his whereabouts to do the same.
Officer Davis has been with the Dallas Police Department since November of 2007 and is assigned to the South Central Patrol Division.
