Police Respond To Calls About A Screaming Woman And A Man Yelling ‘You’re Going to Die’ – They Didn’t Expect THIS!


It’s a scene that many of us have probably encountered with our spouse or special someone at one point or another. But the way it went down in this case surely isn’t typical.

Police in New South Wales, Australia responded to multiple calls of a possible domestic violence altercation, and expected to find a grisly scene involving a man and woman.

Callers had warned officers of a woman screaming bloody murder, and a man shouting “I’m going to kill you!”

Turns out they were both one and the same.

Via Harbourside LAC – NSW Police Force Facebook page:

Police received numerous calls in relation to a violent domestic, with reports of a woman screaming hysterically, a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, your 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 with the following conversation:

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.

We imagine it sounded something like this …
