NFL legend Joe Montana and his wife, Jennifer, confronted an intruder attempting to kidnap one of their grandchildren on Saturday, according to a TMZ Sports report.

The couple were staying at a house in Malibu, Calif. when a 39-year-old woman reportedly entered the home through an unlocked door and took an infant child right out of the arms of another woman.

The intruder attempted to walk away with the child when the Hall of Fame quarterback and his wife both confronted the intruder and “wrestled” their grandchild away from the woman, law enforcement sources told TMZ Sports.

The intruder left the house while Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies – who were in the neighborhood on an unrelated matter -- were flagged down by someone inside the home to catch the woman.

She was later apprehended by police and arrested on kidnapping and burglary charges.

Montana took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to briefly address the matter.

It does not appear as if the grandchild was harmed in the incident.

Montana, 64, played in the NFL from 1979-94 and won four Super Bowls as quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000.
