Legendary NFL quarterback Joe Montana stopped a woman attempting to abduct his baby grandchild from a California home, a report said Sunday.

A 39-year-old woman used an unlocked door to let herself into a Los Angeles County home where the former San Francisco 49ers star was staying with his family around 5 p.m. Saturday, TMZ Sports reported, citing law-enforcement sources.

The alleged intruder snatched the baby from the arms of another woman and fled to another part of the home, the report said.

Neither of the women was identified by name in the report.

The would-be kidnapper made her way to another part of the home, where she was met by the 64-year-old Hall of Famer and his wife.

They wrestled the tot away from the woman, who fled the home, according to TMZ Sports.

LA Country sheriff’s deputies happened to be on the block for an unrelated matter, and were flagged down by someone from the home, the report said.

The suspect was nabbed a few blocks away and charged with kidnapping and burglary.
