Girl attacked twice in 10 minutes by "hijab scissor" assailant

Khawlah Noman 11 speaks to reporters with her mother at the Pauline Johnson Junior Public School in Toronto

An 11-year-old Toronto girl says she was walking to school this morning when a man used scissors and cut parts of her hijab. "I can't imagine how afraid she must have been", Trudeau said. She says she screamed and he ran away, but returned a few minutes later. Khawlah said she noticed the scissors the suspect was carrying had a blue handle.

Officers describe the suspect as an Asian man in his 20s with a medium build. He wore glasses, a black hoodie and black trousers. The man fled the scene after the assault.

Police spokesman Katrina Arrogante confirmed the child was allegedly attacked twice by the same man in less than 10 minutes.

Police say the Grade 6 student was not injured, but her hijab had a number of cuts in it.

"Me and my brother were walking together to school and sadly someone assaulted me by cutting my hijab two times".

Bird said the school board is offering support to the affected student and her family. "I didn't feel comfortable that people are doing this". "You should not act like this".

Khawlah's mother, who was at her daughter's side while she spoke, demanded the attack be labeled a hate crime.

"It's just not Canada. I'm so proud to be a Canadian, and I feel so safe in this community", Samad said. He should get help.

"This does not represent who we are".

The eleven-year-old girl said she is afraid to walk to class again after the incident and police were still searching for the man.

Khawlah Noman, 11, is accompanied by her brother Mohammad Zakarijja and their mom Saima Samad as she recalls a man slicing her hijab as she and her sibling walked to Pauline Johnson Public School in Scarborough on Friday, Jan. 12, 2018.

In early December 2016, a female Muslim Baruch College student claimed several men shouting "Donald Trump!" attempted to tear off her hijab on a New York City subway train; she later admitted to making it up.

"This school lives inclusiveness", she said. "We don't know what motivated the attack". But we believe in peace.

Toronto District School Board spokesperson Ryan Bird told CBC Toronto that police and the student's family was immediately contacted after Khawlah reported what happened to school officials.

"We don't know what motivated the attack", Toronto police Constable David Hopkinson said initially but authorities later said the incident is being investigated as a hate crime. "We are shocked to learn of this assault and we will be working closely with police to offer any assistance that we can".
