Smollett, who is black and openly gay, told police that his attackers doused him with an unknown chemical substance, shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him before looping what police said was a thin rope tied like a noose around his neck.

Cops have said they found plenty of surveillance video, but none that captured the incident.

A spokesperson for Chicago police added that the department was "appreciative" Smollett made a decision to cooperate with the investigation, but they'll likely be asking him for more phone records in order to properly review the case.

On Monday, a spokesperson for Smollett told the New York Post in an email that phone records from Smollett's manager, Brandon Z, "were sent to police on February 5 and Jussie's records were sent over this morning".

Smollett's music manager, Brandon Z. Moore, told ABC News he was on the phone with Smollett during the alleged January 29 attack and heard a "scuffle" and a "racial slur", but Smollett initially refused to release his phone to cops so they could verify the claim. The reported incident is now under investigation by police, who requested Smollett's phone records.

But department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the phone records are contained in a heavily redacted document file and aren't sufficient for an investigation.

Meanwhile, Chicago police said Sunday that Smollett has yet to turn over data from his cell phone to verify that he was on the phone with his music manager, Brandon Moore, when he was allegedly attacked. Smollett has already agreed to surrender his phone records and is in the process of gathering them, according to TMZ.

Elgas added that Chicago police have a security image of Smollett alone inside a Subway sandwich shop near the location of the reported crime, and that cops also obtained additional video placing him at the scene of the crime.

"I've been in this neighborhood five years".

ABC 7 in Chicago reports, "The hot sauce bottle was partially filled with a clear liquid that smelled like bleach, according to a New York Post story confirmed by Chicago police".

However, the Chicago Police Department appears to be dismissing the evidence because they didn't find it, "It's unclear if that is related to the incident as it was not discovered during any of the earlier canvasses but we took it for analysis".
