How to unassign issue using Bitbucket's Rest API?

I have had success assigning issues through Bitbucket's Rest API. I just set the value assignee with an array containing the uuid of the individual (alternatively using account_id also works). However, I have not had success with unassigning issues using the Rest API. I have tried numerous things:

Saving Issue without any assignee value (essentially undefined, it isn't set). This results in saving the issue successfully, but retaining the assignee value from before (since it wasn't changed).

All other ways that I have tried have resulted in the error: "Bad request: Key 'assignee' None is not a collaborator on this repository." These are some of the things that I have tried:

'assignee' => null

'assignee' => ['name' => null]

'assignee' => ['uuid' => null]

'assignee' => ['account_id' => null]

'assignee' => ['username' => null]

'assignee' => ['name' => null, 'username' => null, 'account_id' => null]

Can anyone tell me what I am missing?
