Sodsai Dalzell was arrested for allegedly attempting to kidnap the 9-month-old granddaughter of Joe Montana over the weekend.
MSN reports that Montana, the famous Hall of Fame quarterback, and his wife confronted a home intruder who attempted to kidnap their grandchild over the weekend, police have said.
Montana told deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that his grandchild was sleeping in a playpen Saturday when an unknown woman entered their home in Malibu and grabbed the child, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Joe Montana led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl victories (1982, 1985, 1989, 1990) and was named the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) three times.
The Los Angeles Times said Montana and his wife, Jennifer, confronted the woman, whom authorities later identified as Sodsai Dalzell, tried to “de-escalate the situation” and asked her to give back their grandchild.
After a tussle, law enforcement officials said, Jennifer Montana, pried the child out of the woman’s arms.
Dalzell ran off but was later arrested. ABC News says that 39-year-old Dalzell was charged with kidnapping and burglary. Bail was set at $150,000.
It’s believed that the suspect entered through an unlocked door. It’s not known at this time if the Montana family know the suspect, or how she knew there was a child in the home.
