A Chicago-area activist and Dolton administrator known for appearing at crime scenes with grieving families has been fired by the group he works for following allegations he assaulted a co-worker .

Andrew Holmes was fired by Chicago Survivors last month amid a lawsuit over the proceeds of the allegations.

Chicago Survivors released the following statement to NBC Chicago:

“Our mission is to provide crime victim services to family members of homicide victims. Our relationships with these families and our community are therefore essential. Without compromise, there must be strong mutual trust and a high level of safety for adults and children. we serve. For these reasons, we terminated his employment in April after learning of the serious allegations.

Holmes, who is still a Dolton administrator, is being sued by Fenia Dukes, a former aide to Mayor Tiffany Henyard.

Dukes filed a civil suit against Henyard and Holmes, accusing Holmes of assault.

“I fight for every woman, it’s not just about me,” Dukes said in a video regarding the lawsuit and the allegations detailed therein.

Dukes details the allegations in the video, which revolve around a taxpayer-funded economic development trip to Las Vegas nearly a year ago.

Henyard, Holmes and several other leaders of the village and township of Thornton were present on the trip.

According to the lawsuit, Dukes said she felt disoriented shortly after having dinner and walking the Las Vegas Strip with Holmes.

She said she ended up passing out.

“My last memory is waking up in his room,” Dukes said in the video.

Holmes did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Many Dolton residents and several trustees also called on Holmes to resign from the Dolton Village Board following the allegations.
