Joe Montana always seemed to come out a winner on the field, and it looks like that charming life flows to the personal side as well.
The 64-year-old, four-time Super Bowl champion and his wife faced a crazy situation over the weekend when they found a strange woman in their Malibu, California home, holding their 9-month-old grandchild, who had been sleeping.
The sheriff’s department said in a statement:
“Mr. Montana told (deputies) their nine-month-old grandchild was sleeping in the playpen when an unknown female entered the residence and removed the child from the playpen and held it in her arms.”
Joe and his wife pried the child from the woman’s arms, after which she fled. Joe flagged down a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy and now the woman is in custody. No one was hurt.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out. Scary situation, but thankful that everybody is doing well. We appreciate respect for our privacy at this time.”
It doesn’t sound like the attempted kidnapping was well-planned but still scary… and weird.
