Police received multiple calls about the sound of crashing furniture and a man screaming: “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead! Die Die!”

Terrified neighbours phoned the police after hearing a woman screaming and a man yelling: “I’m going to kill you”.

But when officers arrived at the address they discovered a man (no woman involved) chasing a hysterically screaming at a spider.

Furniture was thrown, screams were heard, and there were threats to kill.

The police transcript is a follows:

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’

The police continued:

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’

It sounds like the spider didn’t survive. 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.’
