Khawlah Noman was walking to her Toronto school when a man suddenly appeared behind her and cut her hijab, police said.

"I felt really scared and confused," the 11-year-old girl said at a news conference Friday.

The man approached the child from behind Friday morning as she made her way to school with her younger brother. He pulled the hood off the girl's jacket and cut her hijab with a pair of scissors, police said.

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

Switzerland's Central Bank Made $55 Billion Last Year---More Than Apple

  Switzerland's Central Bank Made $55 Billion Last Year---More Than Apple Switzerland’s central bank said it expects to make a record profit of $55.2 billion in 2017, citing higher global equity and bond prices as well as a weaker Swiss franc.The Swiss National Bank said Tuesday it expects to report a record annual profit of 54 billion Swiss francs ($55 billion) for last year—a staggering sum equal to 8% of the country’s entire gross domestic product. By comparison, if the Federal Reserve were to run a profit of similar scale relative to the U.S. economy, it would be about $1.5 trillion. The Federal Reserve has earned an annual profit of around $100 billion in recent years.

Authorities are investigating the incident as a hate crime. It happened in a Toronto neighborhood known for its diversity.

"My heart goes out to Khawlah Noman following this morning's cowardly attack on her in Toronto," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday on Twitter. "Canada is an open and welcoming country, and incidents like this cannot be tolerated."

Police described the suspect as 5 feet 7 inches with a thin build who was between the ages of 20 to 30. He was wearing black prescription glasses, a black hooded sweater, black pants and brown gloves, police said.

School officials notified police and Khawlah's family immediately after the girl reported the incident to them, according to the Toronto District School Board.

Chayka on split with Duclair: 'It's gone back a few years now'

  Chayka on split with Duclair: 'It's gone back a few years now' The Arizona Coyotes and Anthony Duclair officially parted ways Wednesday, as the 22-year-old forward was shipped to the Chicago Blackhawks in a four-player trade. A report from The Athletic's Craig Custance last week revealed Duclair had requested a trade out of Arizona, but Coyotes general manager John Chayka revealed a potential move has been brewing for a while now. "It's gone back for a few years now where the team wasn't particularly happy with the player and the player wasn't particularly happy with the team," Chayka said, per Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press.

"This is shocking to learn of this assault. And we'll be working closely with police to offer any assistance that we can," Ryan Bird, a school board spokesman, told CNN partner CBC. "In the meantime, we're offering support to the impacted student and her family."

CNN's Chris Boyette contributed to this report.
