Joe and Jennifer Montana had a little more excitement than they were probably hoping for this weekend when a woman entered their home and attempted to kidnap their grandchild.
According to reports, Jennifer was able to pry the child away from the woman during a scuffle inside the home. Police found the intruder a short time later.
From TMZ Sports:
LASD has shed a bit more light on how exactly Joe Montana's grandkid was almost snatched in plain sight -- they say the intruder made her way into his home and actually removed the infant (who was asleep) from a playpen, holding them in her arms.
At that point, the Sheriff's Department says Joe and his wife, Jennifer, confronted the woman, attempting to deescalate the situation, asking the lady to give them back the child. Eventually, LASD says a scuffle ensued and Jennifer was able to safely pry the baby from the woman's arms. She fled, but was picked up by cops soon after and taken into custody.
LASD says all parties were unharmed in the incident, including the 9-month-old child. The suspect as been identified as Sodsai Dalzell.
The Montanas thanked everyone who reached out, but have asked for privacy.
Thank you to everyone who has reached out. Scary situation, but thankful that everybody is doing well. We appreciate respect for our privacy at this time.

What a fucking crazy story. What kind of person goes into someone's home and attempts to kidnap a child? That's insane.
