Oxford University student Inigo Lapwood, 23, (pictured) was arrested in September 2016
An Oxford University student who was cleared of sexual assault has claimed his accuser sent a drug dealer to kill him at his home.
Inigo Lapwood, 23, was arrested in September 2016 after a woman reported him to police for allegations including sexual assault and actual bodily harm.
Officers conducted an investigation but he was released last week after he was bailed to his parents' home in Wantage, Oxfordshire.
The philosophy and psychology student at Christ Church college made a series of allegations against his accuser after he was arrested on his houseboat, reports Harry Yorke at the Daily Telegraph.
He contacted Thames Valley Police to report that the woman allegedly attempted to have him killed by a hitman.
Mr Lapwood, who once took a homemade flamethrower to an annual university ball, reportedly said the woman sent the local drug dealer to his houseboat weeks before she spoke to the police.
It comes after fellow students said that Mr Lapwood was 'framed' by accuser, reports the newspaper.

The Telegraph has seen the complaints made by Mr Lapwood and he told officers the alleged hitman brandished a knife before he made a number of death threats.
His allegations have resulted in a fresh investigation and he also reported that his houseboat was broken into.
A Thames Valley Police spokesman confirmed officers were called in October after a report that threats to kill had been made against a 23-year-old man in Oxford.
The spokesman also said that officers were called following reports of criminal damage on a boat.

A fellow Oxford student, who did not want to be named, told the newspaper that the woman 'persuaded' the dealer to visit Mr Lapwood 'with the intention of stabbing him'.
Earlier this month, a police spokesman confirmed that he had been released.
They said: 'The 23-year-old man who was arrested on 20 September in Oxford on suspicion of sexual assault and ABH has been released with no further action due to insufficient evidence.'
Mr Lapwood said he was 'tremendously relieved' after police said they would not be investigating the matter any further.
