The American football legend (64) and his family experienced the nightmare on Saturday, when an unwanted guest entered their home in Malibu.

Police confirm to the website that the woman allegedly tore a sleeping baby out of the arms of another woman inside the house. Who kept the child in the first place is not stated.
The nine-month-old baby is one of Montana’s grandchildren.
The woman is said to have taken the baby into another room in the house. There, Joe Montana and his wife Jennifer are said to have confronted her and finally managed to pull the child from her. The uninvited guest must then have run out of the house.
Police were nearby and arrested the woman a few blocks away. She is now in custody, suspected of kidnapping and burglary.
