Sydney police respond to report of 'woman's screams', finds man terrified of spider

When Sydney police responded to a 'violent domestic incident', they instead where met with the unexpected.

Numerous calls were made to the police in relation to a domestic disturbance with reports of a woman screaming hysterically and a man yelling "I’m going to kill you, you’re dead! Die Die!!."

Further reports were made of furniture being thrown around the housing unit.

However, in the transcript released by Harbourside LAC-NSW Police Force, when police arrived on the scene, all was not as it seemed.

This is the following exchange between police and the male after he opened the door.

Police: ‘Where’s your wife’
Male: ‘umm I don’t have one’
Police: ‘Where your girlfriend’
Male: ‘umm I don’t have one’
Police: ‘We had a report of a domestic and a women screaming, where is she?’
Male: ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about I live alone’
Police: ‘Come on mate people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit’

Eventually the male came clean about what he was actually screaming at:

Police: ‘come on mate, what have you done to her.’
Male: ‘it was a spider’
Police: ‘Sorry??’
Male: ‘It was a spider, a really big one!!
Police:’what about the women screaming?’
Male: ‘Yeah sorry that was me, I really really hate spiders’

Police added, "As it turns out the male was chasing a rather large spider around the unit with a can or mortein. After a very long pause some laughter and a quick look in the unit to make sure there was no injured party (apart from the spider) we left."
