WA Police have dispatched "multiple units" to a home in Perth's northern suburbs after they received a call from a anxious walker who had heard a toddler screaming and a man shouting "why don't you die".

A concerned passer-by was walking outside a house in suburban Perth when they heard a toddler screaming and a man repeatedly shouting "Why don't you die?".

And despite the blip, the force said the passerby did the "right thing" in calling police and that officers were "very pleased" the incident turned out differently to how they feared. "The toddler inside was screaming ... caller doesn't know them, but has seen them a few times when walking".

Officers, who arrived about 20 minutes later, gave an update, The Guardian reported.

The report notes that no one was visibly injured (except the spider), that the man has as serious injury of spiders, and that he apologised for the inconvenience caused to the police.

The Catalans also revealed that they had discussions with the player on two occasions, in the month of August and a week ago. PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot deems Tottenham "below" him, according to ESPN .

The tweet was later deleted, though officers confirmed to Guardian Australia the incident had occurred, but that the log was removed because of "some typos in it".

"It's great that it's only an incident involving a spider".

Dinnison said the police log post was deleted because it included a screenshot of police communications.

The man apologised to the police officers attending the scene, admitting he was terrified of arachnids. "No further police involvement required", the police log concluded.
