A woman who accused Felix G. Arroyo of repeated sexual harassment while he headed the city’s health and human services department has withdrawn her complaint with the state.

In pulling her complaint, the woman indicated she would pursue civil action against Arroyo, according to the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

“The commission has received notice that the complainant intends to file a civil action,’’ wrote MCAD investigating commissioner Sunila Thomas-George in a Nov. 28 letter on the case. “The complaint before the commission is hereby dismissed without prejudice as to the merits.’’
