WINNIPEG -- A Winnipeg teenager who tried to light a Jewish classmate's hair on fire will be sentenced in January.

The boy, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, uttered anti-Semitic remarks before using a lighter to burn the girl's hair in a high school hallway.

He was 15 at the time of the November 2011 attack, and pleaded guilty earlier this year to assault with a weapon.

Sentencing was scheduled for Thursday, but has been pushed back because a forensic psychiatric report on the boy was only recently completed.

The girl was not injured and returned to school.
