Police probe hijab cut by man in Canada

Police probe hijab cut by man in Canada

The girl was reportedly on her way to school when the man came up to her and used scissors to cut off her hijab.

Khawlah Noman and her brother had only been walking for two minutes when she became aware a man was following them on their way to school Friday morning.

Noman's mom, who also spoke to media at the school Friday afternoon, teared up as she recounted seeing her daughter's damaged headscarf. The second attack happened after Khawlah, her brother and a group of children went to cross the light at Bay Mills Blvd.

"There is certainly concern for public safety, considering there is a man that has been reported as having a pair of scissors considered a weapon", she said.

Her brother told reporters that he was frightened, and anxious his sister would be hurt.

"This girl was fearless enough to confront the man, look at the man and make a noise, which is very good for her to realize this is wrong".

When Khawlah was asked what she would say to the man if she had a chance, she said, "I think what you're doing is wrong".

The girl said she's confused and scared following the incident.

Man, woman charged with murder in shooting death of Pierce County deputy
McCartney spent six years with the Hoquiam Police Department before transferring to Pierce County in 2014 and resided near Yelm. In part, it said, "Losing Daniel ripped a hole in our lives.The grief that we're experiencing is nearly unbearable".

"I'm just happy she's safe".

Authorities are investigating the incident, which occurred at about 9 a.m. (1400 GMT) near the Pauline Johnson school in Toronto's east side, police spokeswoman Katrina Arrogante told AFP.

"I want her and her family and her friends and community to know that that is not what Canada is".

Samad said she grew up in Canada and has been here for 25 years, and has not seen this type of incident before.

Toronto Mayor John Tory says he is "shocked and appalled" to hear about the assault.

"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. This does not represent who we are.

"No child should ever be afraid walking to school in Toronto because of what they are wearing or for any other reason", he said in a statement.

Anyone with information about the investigation should contact 42 Division at 416-808-4200 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at 222tips.com or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637). I join with all Toronto residents in standing up to such an act of hatred.
