The investigation found the alleged assaults included kissing, fondling and digital penetration. Holmes surrendered to police Thursday morning, according to the Inquirer.

He was reportedly suspended for 30 days with the intent to dismiss. John McNesby, president for Philadelphia’s police union, said it would not represent Holmes, the Inquirer reported.
