“Mr. Montana, and his wife Jennifer, confronted the female, attempted to de-escalate the situation, and asked for the suspect to give back their grandchild. A tussle ensued and Mrs. Montana was able to safely pry the child out of the suspect's arms,” the department said.
The woman then fled to a nearby house, where she was found and arrested by deputies whom Montana flagged down around 5 p.m. while they were on patrol in the 22100 block of Pacific Coast Highway, officials said. Sodsai Dalzel, 39, was booked on suspicion of kidnapping and burglary, according to the department.
The baby was not hurt and no injuries were reported, officials said.
