According to officers at the time, the 11-year-old girl was on her way to Pauline Johnson Public School in Scarborough, when she felt something and turned around to see a man trying to cut her hijab with a pair of scissors.

Khawlah Noman claimed she had been assaulted while walking to school with her younger brother.

Toronto Police began investigating the incident Friday after it was reported that a man attempted to attack the girl and cut her hijab while she walked to school. She also said the man returned a short time later and continued to cut her hijab from behind before he smiled and ran away.
