A 12-year-old boy, who has been accused of trying to rip the head scarf off of a Muslim classmate during recess, was arrested at school Wednesday on hate crime charges.

The boy is a sixth grader at the Dreyfus Intermediate School in Staten Island, N.Y.  Police charged the boy as a juvenile, reports CBS station WCBS.

Police and school officials say the boy has a history of harassing the girl, taunting her and threatening her on at least four separate occasions.

The police report says he asked, "Are you Muslim?," while trying to remove her scarf.

The girl suffered minor injuries. The case will be handled in family court.
