Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana and his wife Jennifer stopped an alleged abduction within their residence on Saturday in Malibu, California. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said that the intruder got into the home through an unlocked door.
Once inside, the woman tried to abduct their nine-month-old grandchild, police said. Montana and his wife saw the woman holding the baby, who was asleep during the ordeal.
Then, there was reportedly a tussle over the child. Mrs. Montana was able to get the child away from the intruder.
“Thank you to everyone, who has reached out,” Montana said on Twitter. “Scary situation, but thankful that everybody is doing well. We appreciate respect for our privacy at this time.”
Officers from the Sheriff’s department were on the same block for an unrelated matter when Montana flagged down an officer.
Through their investigation, Sodsai Dalzell was identified as the intruder. The 39-year-old fled the scene in an attempt to avoid arrest after the tussle.
The authorities were able to find her a short distance away from the scene. She was charged with burglary and kidnapping charges.
Her bail has been set at $150,000.
“The suspect fled to a nearby house, where she was located and arrested by Malibu/Lost Hills Deputies,” Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department said.
