[Excerpts] A top NYPD commander was brutally beaten by her jealous ex-cop husband who suspected she was cheating on him with a detective, sources told the Daily News on Thursday. Deputy Inspector Juanita Holmes wound up in the hospital with broken ribs and her estranged husband, retired Hempstead, L.I., Detective William Fowlkes, was arrested, sources said. Fowlkes, 47, followed Holmes, 46, to the other man's Suffolk County home on Monday and began pummeling her on the front lawn, sources said. Her piercing screams brought Holmes' friend charging out of his house - and he chased Fowlkes away... A judge gave Holmes, the commander of the 81st Precinct in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, an order of protection against Fowlkes, who bills himself as a "success coach"... "Inspector Holmes is a highly regarded police executive who is the victim of a terrible crime," said Roy Richter, president of the NYPD Captains Endowment Association. "She has the care and support of her friends and co-workers as she recovers from this traumatic act of violence"... Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly recently named Holmes to run the 81st Precinct... "She's a good lady, and a good cop and this is a horrible thing to have happened to her," a police source said... It was unclear if Holmes was romantically involved with the man she was visiting - who is a member of the NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force... Twice-married, she is a 24-year NYPD veteran from a family of cops. Four sisters and a brother are on the force; another brother is a corrections officer; and another is a bounty hunter...

  2. WHATEVER LED TO RISING NYPD STAR'S LONG ISLAND ASSAULT NONE OF OUR BUSINESS

    PHOTO CAPTION: The Holmes sisters have made the NYPD a family affair. Selena Holmes, Janice Holmes, Estella Holmes, Bernice Moran and Juanita Holmes stand in front of a New York City Police Headquarters.
    [Excerpts] Whatever transpired between NYPD Deputy Inspector Juanita Holmes and her husband is nobody's business up to the moment he assaulted her. The husband, retired Hempstead Det. William Fowlkes, says, "Maybe I fell on top of her." Right. Holmes told police that he repeatedly kicked and punched her. A police official says the kicks began as she bent over to retrieve items that spilled from her purse; at least one kick was aimed where the husband knew she had undergone surgery in the past. The medical evidence, two broken ribs and contusions, support Holmes' account... And, since there can be no possible justification for the assault on Holmes, the personal particulars of her relationship with her husband-turned-assailant remain nobody else's business... What is everybody's business is that Holmes recovers from her injuries and returns to her command. She is a true rising star of the NYPD, exactly who we need. She is tough but caring, rooted in the city she serves and extraordinary in every regard... Holmes is also one of the great New York stories. She was raised in Hollis, the daughter of truck driver and handyman James Holmes, who wanted to become a cop but was under the minimum height at the time. Her mother, Joyce Holmes, was a nurse who actually took the police test, but was dissuaded because she already had nine of her 13 children... At the council meeting in October, Holmes arranged for a guest speaker on domestic violence. Nobody could have imagined that Holmes herself would become a victim... Get well soon, Deputy Inspector Holmes. We need you... [Full article here]
