CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Three people are facing charges after a two-hour standoff Friday morning at a Norwood apartment.
Police received an anonymous tip that a possible child sex abuse act was in progress around 5:15 a.m.
A SWAT team was called to the scene. Shortly after their arrival, the suspects surrendered.
Adam West, 26, was arrested on outstanding warrants. He was charged with inducing panic and obstructing justice.
Ashley Christopher, 18, was charged with obstructing justice.
A 9mm semi-automatic weapon was recovered from the apartment.
"From what we can tell, it was not a hostage situation. I believe there was somebody in there with warrants on them and when they were finally able to talk to them, or make contact, they did come out and surrender," explained Norwood Police Lt. Tom Williams.
Authorities say the initial claim of child abuse wasn't valid.
Traffic was blocked off on Montgomery Road and Buxton Avenue and resumed shortly before 8 a.m.
