Local Matters: Burlington police save screaming woman from assailant

BURLINGTON - Fearing the worst, a Hayward Street resident contacted Burlington police last Saturday evening after hearing a blood-curdling scream coming from inside a nearby home.

The call sent two police officers to the scene, but instead of a fight or domestic dispute, police encountered an eight-legged assailant. While she was doing some packing, a woman in the home came face to face with a spider, reveals Sgt. Mike Schirling, a spokesman for the Burlington Police Department.

Police quickly dispatched the creature. "It didn't work out well for the spider," says Schirling.
