The sixth-grader, her mother and her younger brother held a news conference at her school on Friday at which Khawlah Noman said she had been walking to school with her younger brother when a man came up behind her, pulled off her jacket hood and started cutting the bottom of her hijab. She claimed she screamed and ran away, but the man returned less than 10 minutes later and tried to cut it once again.
