Alleged attack on hijab-wearing girl didn't happen

A 11-year-old Canadian girl's much-publicized story about a man attacking her with scissors and cutting her hijab last week is not true, authorities said Monday after an investigation.

Police said it was being investigated as a hate crime, and asked businesses or drivers in the area to check their security cameras and dash cams for footage of a man loitering in the area prior to the alleged assault.

The story made worldwide headlines and drew public condemnation from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The girl said she screamed and the man ran away, but he returned a few minutes later to assault her again.

"After a detailed investigation, police have determined that the events described in the original news release did not happen", police said in a release.

The Toronto District School Board then put her before the media on Friday to recount the matter.

Canadian police say an alleged attack on young girl wearing a hijab did not happen. "Canada is an open and welcoming country, and incidents like this can not be tolerated".

More than 1,500 personnel were assigned to search-and-rescue and cleanup efforts in the area, which spanned about 30 square miles. Sometimes, the dispatcher will just have him wait at a truck stop until the road is clear and he's able to travel again, he said.


Police say they are no longer seeking a suspect. "I felt confused, scared, terrified".

Police were investigating the apparent assault as a hate crime, however, investigators announced on Monday reports of the incident were false. "They gathered evidence from a variety of sources", before concluding the story was untrue, Pugash said, adding that the girl who reported the incident will not face any legal consequences.

She also stressed that, as an 11-year-old, "she probably doesn't really understand the full implications of what she's done" and deserves compassion from adults.
