Smollett, who publicly came out as being gay in 2015, was walking on a downtown street when two people approached him and yelled racial and homophobic slurs.

They allegedly wrapped a rope around his neck then began hitting Smollett in the face and poured an “unknown chemical substance” on him according to a statement from the Chicago Police Department.

“Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime,” the police statement said.

According to police, they’re investigating the incident as “a possible hate crime.”

The U.S. Postal Service has suspended mail service Wednesday to all of Metro Detroit.

Delivery has been suspended for the following ZIP code locations:

Michigan: 486-491, 493-499
