Retired NFL quarterback Joe Montana and his wife Jennifer Montana reportedly stopped an intruder who carried off one of their grandchildren. This happened Saturday, according to law enforcement sources cited by TMZ.
The suspect, identified as a 39-year-old woman, went through an unlocked door into a home that the couple was staying at. She grabbed an infant, and walked off, but the Montanas stopped her, and wrestled back the baby, according to the report. The suspect ran away, but nearby Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were flagged down. The 39-year-old woman was arrested several blocks away, and charged in a kidnapping and burglary case.
Those who had information on the matter are encouraged to call the LASD’s Malibu/Lost Hills station at (818) 878-1808, according to Q13Fox.
