Hijab scissor attack against 11-year-old did not occur

Hijab scissor attack against 11-year-old did not occur

An 11-year-old girl told officers she was walking to school when a man approached her from behind, pulled off the hood to her jacket and cut her hijab with a pair of scissors.

"I'm actually really scared, but I have family to support me", she said at the time.

Khawlah Noman said she screamed and the man ran away, returning a short time later to continue cutting her hijab. We followed this crowd of people to be safe.

The alleged assault spurred reactions from all three levels of government, with Mayor John Tory, Premier Kathleen Wynne, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau all condemning the attack.


But Toronto police released a brief statement Monday saying that the events described by Noman did not occur.

Toronto Police spokesman Mark Pugash said Monday an extensive investigation was conducted and police concluded it did not happen.

Noman's allegation was cited as evidence of growing anti-Muslim sentiment in the West. Activists in Canada and the USA have claimed that bigotry and hate crimes towards Muslims have been on the rise. The girl who reported the incident will not face any legal consequences.

Toronto District School Board spokesperson Ryan Bird told The Scarborough Mirror in an email, "We are very thankful that this assault did not in fact happen".
