When several Sydney police officers rushed to the scene of what they believed was a domestic violence incident, they met the unexpected.

Police received "numerous calls" in relation to a violent domestic incident, with reports of a woman screaming hysterically, a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead! Die Die!!”, with the sounds of furniture being tossed around the unit.

Numerous police cars responded to the address and began banging on the door.

A man answered the door, out of breath and rather flushed.

The following exchange between police officers and the man ensued.

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”

At this point the male became very sheepish.

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”

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.
