Tensions were high when officers in North Sydney rushed to an apartment in the middle of the night after reports of a man screaming “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead. Die! Die!” accompanied by a woman’s terrified screams.

Police feared the worst, expecting to walk in on a grave case of domestic abuse after several neighbours raised their concern in the Wollstonecraft suburb.

But while the man who answered the door was “hot and flustered”, there appeared to be no sign of his wife or girlfriend.

This exchange followed…

Police: “Where’s your wife?”

Man: “Umm, I don’t have one.”

Police: “Where’s your girlfriend?”

Man: “Umm, I don’t have one.”

Police: “Come on mate, people clearly heard you yelling. You were going to kill her and there was furniture getting thrown around.”

At this point, the man became rather sheepish.

“It was, um, a spider,” he confessed.

“What about the woman screaming?”

His blushes deepened. “Um, that was me. I really, really hate spiders.”

Ah. Well, in fairness to the fella, spiders give us the heebie jeebies too!

Officers inspected the property to find the chaos had been caused by the man chasing a  “rather large spider” with a can of pesticide. The whole thing was then relayed on the local police’s Facebook page. 

Nobody was injured in the incident, police confirmed, “apart from the spider”.

RIP.
