Legendary hall of fame quarterback Joe Montana found himself in a truly terrifying situation on Saturday, when a deranged individual attempted to steal his infant grandchild from their own crib in his California home.
Montana and his wife caught the intruder in the act however and were able to wrestle the child safely away from them before any harm was done to the child.
As TMZ reports:
Joe Montana and his wife had the scare of their life Saturday, when an intruder came inside the house and snatched one of their grandchildren right out of a woman’s arms.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports … at 5 PM Saturday a 39-year-old woman entered the home where Joe and Jennifer Montana were staying — she got in through an unlocked door. The intruder saw a woman holding a baby — it’s unclear who was holding the infant.
Our law enforcement sources say the intruder walked away with Montana’s grandchild to another part of the house where she was confronted by Joe and Jennifer. They wrestled the baby away from the woman. The intruder then ran out of the house.
Turns out L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies were on the same block on an unrelated matter. Someone inside the home flagged the deputies down, told them what happened and they found the intruder a few blocks away.
Thankfully it appears neither Montana or any member of his family was hurt during the encounter. The female suspect has now been booked on kidnapping and burglary charges.
