A 9-year-old High Point Elementary School pupil who said she was sexually assaulted in a bathroom at the Pasadena school this month recanted her claim Tuesday, Anne Arundel County police said.

The girl had told authorities that a man with "yellow stained teeth" and "long dirty fingernails" had fondled her March 9, according to a police news release.

Police said yesterday that they do not intend to charge the girl.
