Police said that due to the social media attention the story was getting they wanted to release their conclusion about the incident as soon as possible.
Toronto Police spokesman Mark Pugash said Monday an extensive investigation was conducted and police concluded it did not happen.
An incident involving a 11-year-old girl who claimed that her hijab was cut by an individual outdoors "did not happen", according to the Toronto police, reports CTV news on Monday.
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.
Toronto police have confirmed that an alleged scissors attack on a schoolgirl's hijab, which sparked widespread outrage including a public condemnation by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was a hoax.
Police say they are no longer seeking a suspect.

"These allegations were extremely serious and not surprisingly, they received national and global attention", said police spokesman Mark Pugash, who added he hoped the false tale doesn't discourage others from coming forward to report alleged hate crimes.
Pugash declined to say whether the girl had acknowledged that the incident had not happened.
"I felt really scared and confused", she said.
"We are very thankful that this assault did not in fact happen". The girl's mother said she "was very sad" and thanked the community for their support.
Premier Kathleen Wynne, who called it a cowardly act of hate that had no place in Ontario, issued a statement on Monday, but did not provide any comment on whether this incident might make Canadians less likely to believe similar allegations.
