A man wanted for stalking an 11-year-old Williamsburg girl is no longer being sought by the police.

The man, initially accused of following the young girl home from school on Monday, is developmentally disabled and was not stalking the girl.

“Upon further investigation it was determined that the individual depicted in the photos and videos that accompanied the request for media attention did not stalk the victim,” a NYPD spokesperson said.

The man had been accused of following the 11-year-old for about five blocks as she walked home along S 9th Street on Dec. 3.
