Hall of Famer Joe Montana thwarts attempted kidnapping of his grandchild


Four-time Super Bowl champion Joe Montana rescued one of his grandchildren in a kidnapping attempt, law enforcement officials confirmed on Sunday.

TMZ Sports was the first to report the news.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says Montana told deputies that his grandchild was sleeping in a playpen on Saturday evening when an unknown woman entered their home and grabbed the child.

According to reports, Montana and his wife, Jennifer, were at their home in Malibu, Calif., when a 39-year-old woman walked in through an unlocked door. She allegedly took the child out of someone’s arms and walked into another room, where the Montanas grabbed their grandchild away from her.

The woman ran off but was apprehended by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies who were in the area on an unrelated call. Reports said she was arrested, but the sheriff’s office has yet to release her name or the charges.

The Montanas have four adult children. No further information was available about the child, including age and gender.

Joe Montana, 64, retired from the NFL in 1995 after 13 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and two with the Kansas City Chiefs. He led the 49ers to four Super Bowl victories, was a two-time league Most Valuable Player and a three-time first-team All-Pro. He was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, in 2000.

Last fall, he was named to the NFL 100 All-Time Team.
