Dallas police are looking for one of their own on assault warrants.

Officer Rashad Davis was arrested Dec. 6 on suspicion of assault. His girlfriend told police Davis pushed her during a fight at their apartment.

He was placed on administrative leave during the investigation.

On Tuesday, Davis' girlfriend called police about another fight. Officers said she sustained visible injuries. She also told police that Davis had pointed his service weapon to head in mid-November.

Dallas police this week issued warrants for Davis' arrest in both incidents.

He faces three assault charges, including a second-degree felony.

Davis has been with the department since 2007. He was honored for bravery for a 2009 incident in which he fired at an armed person. He was also nominated for Officer of the Month in 2010 at the South Central Patrol Division, where he was assigned.

Dallas police have alerted the entire force about the warrants.

They are asking anyone with knowledge of Davis' whereabouts to call police.
