The Los Angeles woman accused of trying to kidnap NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana’s granddaughter from his home calmly surrendered to authorities after the terrifying episode, video shows.
Sodsai Predpring Dalzell, 38, was seen wearing a long, dressy white skirt and sleek, dark top while being cuffed in front of a squad car in Malibu after the alleged kidnapping attempt on Saturday, according to cellphone video.
Dalzell then appeared in Los Angeles County court Tuesday, where she pleaded not guilty to the charges.
“Miss Dalzell is extremely apologetic and is very well concerned about the well-being of the family,” her attorney Ayinde Jones said.
However, Jones said he has “no hindsight, no clue as yet on why she did what she did, only that she is very apologetic.”
Montana, 64, told authorities that his 9-month-old granddaughter was asleep in a playpen in his house when a stranger, who cops later identified as Dalzell, entered and snatched the child.
The retired San Francisco 49ers star and his wife, Jennifer, confronted the woman, attempted to deescalate the situation and asked her to return the child, authorities said.
Following a brief struggle, Jennifer was able to pry the child away, and Dalzell fled from the home.
She was arrested nearby on charges of attempted kidnapping of a child under the age of 14 and burglary.
“She has told me over and over again that she understands the harm that she has caused,” her attorney said, adding that he plans to put forward a defense “focused on ensuring that Miss Dalzell gets the help that she may need.”
Her bail was set at $200,000 and she was told to return to court Oct. 20.
If convicted, she could face up to eight years in prison.
