‘Why don't you DIE!’ Police rush to house of man SCREAMING while trying to kill… a SPIDER

POLICE in Australia rushed to a house after an emergency call from a passer-by reported hearing screaming and a toddler crying – with officers discovering a man attempting to KILL a lone SPIDER.

Officers in Perth, Australia responded to reports from a worried member of the public, who heard shouting and screams of “why won’t you just die?” ringing from a house. But on arrival at the address, a man explained he suffered from a serious phobia of spiders - and profusely apologised for the hair-raising alarm. Following the emergency call, worried officers in the district of Wanneroo alerted the public of the apparent “danger” in the house – which was at first thought to be a domestic abuse incident.

Wanneroo Police tweeted on Wednesday morning: “Caller walked past the AA and heard a male screaming out ‘Why don’t you die’ – repeatedly.

“The toddler inside was screaming … Caller doesn’t know them, but has seen them a few times when walking."

But just twenty minutes later, the police department tweeted the call was in fact a false alarm – and said that “police involvement” was no longer “required”.

The tweet read: “Police spoke with all parties who advised that husband had only been trying to kill a spider (has serious fear of spiders).

“Apologised for inconvenience to police. No injuries sighted (except to spider).

The tweet has since been deleted – but the Western Australia Police Force said it had been removed because the post broke protocol by including screenshots of communications.
