Police Release Persons Of Interest Photos In Jussie Smollett Hate Crime Assault

The Chicago PD and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are jointly working the case, in which Smollett was reportedly attacked by two ski-mask-wearing men (who placed a noose around his neck) yelling homophobic and racial slurs. Smollett reportedly told police his attackers were two white men who yelled, "This is MAGA country", wrapped a noose around his neck, poured an "unknown chemical substance on him", and called him racial and homophobic slurs.

The Smollett siblings issue a statement about the brutal attack their brother Jussie faced in Chicago.

Smollett has been cooperating with local authorities to find the men he says allegedly attacked him and shouted racial and homophobic slurs, police said. Police have said that the video shows Smollett, who walks out of frame and when he's back in, he is seen "wearing a rope like a neck tie".

Fans of Jussie Smollett have been looking for answer's since his Tuesday morning attack. Smollett was treated at Northwestern Hospital and remains in stable condition.

Smollett's music manager, Brandon Z. Moore, told ABC News he was on the phone with Smollett during the attack and that he heard "MAGA country" spoken: "I heard that clearly".

Guglielmi said piecing together the private and public surveillance video is tedious work that is made more hard by the fact that the time stamps on various cameras may not be in sync, meaning detectives have to figure out the exact times of events. The rope was still around Smollett's neck when police spoke to him, officials said.

VW Reviving The Classic Beach Buggy As An Electric Concept
The concept was built to show how versatile the MEB platform is and how it could be used to develop low-volume specialty vehicles. So for its latest concept auto , Volkswagen chose to use its new electric platform to build a dune buggy of its own.

But police were confident that they would find more videos and photos.

Describing the details of the allegations as "heinous", Guglielmi said police had widened their search of surveillance cameras - both public and private - in the area surrounding the site of the alleged attack.

The FBI is investigating that alleged letter, Guglielmi told PEOPLE. But they still haven't found video of the attack or the men who match Smollett's description of the suspects, he said. Police confirmed Smollett walking across the street from the two people.

Smollett stars in the Fox series Empire. Smollett's representative said his concert scheduled for Saturday in Los Angeles will go on as planned.

Police say the cameras have helped them make thousands of arrests.
