Montana told police that the woman – later identified as Sodsai Dalzell – entered his home in Malibu, California, removed his 9-month-old grandchild from a playpen, and held the child in her arms.
Montana and his wife Jennifer confronted the woman, tried to de-escalate the situation and asked the woman to return her grandchild, police said.
“There was an argument and Mrs. Montana was able to safely lift the child out of the suspect’s arms,” said a statement from the sheriff’s department.
Dalzell fled Montana’s home to a nearby Malibu home, where she was later taken into custody by sheriff̵
No one was injured during the incident, including the 9-month-old child, the sheriff’s department said.
“Thanks to everyone who got in touch,” he tweeted. “Scary situation, but thankful that everyone is fine. We appreciate the respect for our privacy during this time.”
