Charges dropped in home invasion

The Kent County prosecutor’s office has dropped charges against a Cedar Springs for home invasion after the man passed a polygraph test and the victim disappeared.
Joslin Patrick McEwen, 29, of Cedar Springs, was arrested in February and charged with home invasion after a 26-year-old man, Dante Brown, told police that a neighbor (McEwen) had come over to apologize for an incident that happened the day before, and then started to assault him. The victim said that during the altercation another man—a heavyset white male with tattoos of the “Monster” drink logo on his neck—also began to assault him. The victim was treated at the scene and taken to the hospital for numerous injuries. The victim also told police there may have been a third person involved who had a white truck with five orange lights.
McEwen was charged with first degree home invasion, and being a habitual offender, 3rd offense. But the other assault suspect was never found, and neither was the truck.
McEwen denied the allegations and demanded a polygraph test, which he passed last month. The victim left the area about the same time, and police have not been able to locate him.
