The incident happened around the Don Mills Road and Sheppard Avenue East area.
Neighbour Jaclyn Robertson said she was "frozen in terror" when she heard the girl's screamsn around 5:30 a.m.
"I heard this running sound. I didn't know what it was," she told CTV Toronto. "And then I heard this screaming and I was just locked in my bed, I couldn't move."
Her mother, Beryl Robertson, also heard the sound.
