The huntsman spider is commonly found in Sydney although police did not reveal the identity of the spider.

 It sounded like another domestic violence case for police in Australia after multiple calls about a man shouting "I'm going to kill you, you are dead", along with high pitched screams and furniture being tossed around - however all was not as it seemed.

When police arrived at the Wollstonecraft address on the  North Shore, they were prepared for the worst.

After banging on the door a rather out-of-breath man answered. They recorded the following conversation on their Facebook page.


Police: "Where's your wife."

Male: "Umm I don't have one."

Police: "Where's your girlfriend."

Male: "Umm I don't have one."

Police: "We had a report of a domestic and a woman 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."

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"

The man had been trying to exterminate the spider using an anti-bug spray.

Police say after a look around the apartment that they were happy to report that no-one was injured... except for the spider
