Dalzell allegedly broke into their home in the 22100 block of Pacific Coast Highway and entered the property.
Joe Montana told sheriff’s deputies that the nine-month-old baby girl was asleep Saturday in a playpen in his house in Malibu, California when Dalzell he did not know before entered and picked up the child.
Montana and his wife, Jennifer Montana, confronted Dalzell, tried to calm down the situation, and asked her to give back the 9-year-old baby, according to authorities.
After a brief confrontation, Jennifer pried the girl away, and Dalzell fled from the home, authorities said.

She appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded not guilty. If convicted Dalzell faces eight years in jail; bail was set at $200,00.

According to detectives, Dalzell was unknown to the Montana family before the attempted kidnapping.
The motive behind the crime is still unclear. However, nobody was hurt.
“Miss Dalzell is extremely apologetic and is very well concerned about the well-being of the family,” Dalzell’s attorney Ayinde Jones said outside of court. “She understands the harm that this has caused the family, friends, and also fans of the Montana family. So our heart goes out to them”.
Montana’s family has not confirmed said who the baby’s parents are.
