A WIDOWER died in a hammer raid at his home after being tormented by teenagers as cops arrested two girls aged 14 and 16 on suspicion of murder, according to locals.
Pat Marron, 80, was found dead at his home in Wisbech, Cambs, over the weekend and cops confirmed two teens have been arrested over the “unexplained death”.

Locals claim the girls confronted him with a hammer in a raid gone wrong — days after they sat outside his home waving crowbars.
Another local he had allegedly suffered a sustained campaign of torment.
Neighbours rushed to his aid on Saturday and tried to resuscitate Mr Marron, known as Paddy, after he collapsed from a suspected heart attack.
The girls were quizzed on suspicion of murder and later released on bail. A third girl, 12, and a man, 20, were also arrested but released without facing further action.
Flowers were laid outside Mr Marron’s house, where he had lived with wife Ann before she died aged 71 in 2016.
Pat had a great sense of humour and I’ll always remember this…he loved walking his cats down the road
One local posted on Facebook: “If any of you were 80-plus you’d probably have a cardiac arrest after what that poor man went through.”
Kayleigh Cobb wrote on Facebook: “RIP Patrick. You will be missed so much. You were the best neighbour we could have had.”
Horrified by the news, tributes for the pensioner have come flooding in.
“HE WOULD HELP ANYONE”
One friend, who didn’t want to be named, told Mirror Online: “Pat was really lovely and would help anyone.
“I’ve known Pat since 1978 because my two sons used to play with his two nephews. His wife, Anne died from cancer three years ago. She was still working as a carer when she passed.”
They added: “Pat had a great sense of humour and I’ll always remember this…he loved walking his cats down the road.”
Officers attended the property following reports of a man in cardiac arrest, police rushed to his home at around 5pm on Saturday.
