A man in Australia was trying to kill a spider in his home but his neighbors thought he was trying to kill a woman.

Cops were called to his home around 2 a.m. Saturday morning after he was heard yelling "I'm going to kill you, you're dead! Die! Die!" followed by high-pitched screams.

The man answered the door when New South Wales Police arrived, asking where his wife or girlfriend was. But, he didn't have either.

Police said that neighbors heard furniture being thrown and people yelling. His response, "It was a spider, a really big one."

When asked about the sounds of a woman screaming, "Yeah sorry, that was me, I really, really hate spiders."
