Cincinnati Police have blocked a section of Race Street and are in a standoff with a man they believe is Ernest Seay

The stand-off began early this morning.  The apartment is in a building that is across the street from the Washington Park Elementary School.  The school has not been locked down but police are accompanying anyone who lives in the area to their homes.  Police are asking others in the neighborhood to remain in their homes for their safety. 

Police have called in the SWAT team and have discharged cannisters of gas into the apartment but haven't been able to get him to surrender.

Seay is wanted in connection with a stun gun attack on a woman in a Clifton store.  Seay is also a convicted rapist.
