  • Khawlah Noman speaks to reporters with her mother at her school after she told police that a man cut her hijab with scissors in Toronto Ontario Canada Jan. 12 2018

An 11-year-old Muslim girl who told police she was attacked twice by a man who snuck up behind her and cut her hijab while she walked to school, told reporters the man smiled at her before running away.

According to CBC News, Khawlah Noman, who attends the Pauline Johnson Junior Public School, said she "felt the man behind her" so she turned around to see what was up.

Noman told reporters gathered at the school on Friday afternoon, that she felt "confused, scared and terrified" when seeing the man behind her and that she is now afraid to walk to class.

"He continued cutting at my hijab again", Khawlah said.

Hate crimes targeting Muslims doubled between 2012 and 2014 across Canada, and in January previous year six Muslim men were killed in an attack on a Quebec City mosque.

The assailant is described as an Asian man in his 20s with a mustache and glasses.

Toronto District School Board spokesman Ryan Bird says staff contacted police and the girl's parents shortly after she arrived at school.

"I saw my sister and she was frightened and I was more frightened because I didn't know if she was injured or if he was going to hurt her", Mohammad Zakariya said. "I want her and her family and her friends and community to know that that is not what Canada is". He has black hair, a moustache, and was wearing glasses, a black hoodie, and black trousers.

The girl's mother said she was angry someone would target a child, but was relieved her daughter was not physically harmed.

"I want her and her family and her friends and community to know that that is not what Canada is". The second attack happened after Khawlah, her brother and a group of children went to cross the light at Bay Mills Blvd.

Zakariyya said his sister's hood was pulled up over her head before the attack. "In the meantime, we're offering supports to the impacted student and her family", said Bird.

She and her brother joined a group of other students also walking to school, for safety, but the siblings became separated from the group and from each other at an intersection crossing.

Premier Kathleen Wynne tweeted about the incident, calling it a "cowardly act of hatred".

Toronto Mayor John Tory said he was "shocked and appalled" by the incident. "I certainly hope that the Toronto police services are able to track down the person who committed this violent act". "We must stand firm in our support of this young girl who was assaulted for simply wearing a hijab", the premier wrote on Twitter. There has been a surge in Islamophobic attacks in the country and mosques have been targeted.
