Australia is not the best place for arachnophobes.
The bizarre case started when concerned neighbors reported hearing a woman’s screams coming from a nearby house along with a man yelling “I’m going to kill you, you’re dead. Die! Die!”
When officers arrived and knocked on the door however they were greeted by a flush-faced man who seemed to be out of breath and was very confused about why they were there.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about, I live alone,” he said.
When the policemen pushed for him to explain what all the commotion was about however he eventually came clean about the entire incident.
“It was a spider,” he confessed. “It was a spider, a really big one!!”
“What about the woman screaming ?” the officer asked him.
“Yeah sorry that was me, I really, really hate spiders,” he replied.
“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,” the officers wrote on their Facebook page.
