Police Rushed To A “Domestic Dispute” Only To Discover A Man, Alone, Screaming At A Spider

NSW Police responded to multiple calls reporting a violent domestic dispute in Sydney’s north last weekend, only to discover a single man, living alone, with a can of bug spray in hand.

At around 2am on Saturday morning, calls of a woman and man yelling and screaming hysterically had police rushing to a Wollstonecraft apartment block only to discover that the screaming had come from a man who was attempting to kill a particularly massive spider.

The Harbourside Local Area Command Facebook posted a transcript of the complete interaction, and it’s pretty hilarious.

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.”


In future, maybe try to get rid of spiders a bit more responsibly 🙂
