BATAVIA - A Moscow man pleaded guilty Friday to charges stemming from the robbery, kidnapping and attempted rape of woman in New Richmond.

Randy J. Slider, 42, admitted attacking the woman after he kidnapped her and stole her car last year.

Appearing before Clermont County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ringland, Slider said he had no reason for his actions Sept. 27, 2002.

The woman had stopped at a Sycamore Street gas station in New Richmond, where she left her car running while she went inside the store to get a drink.

When she returned to her car, Slider was in the backseat. He threatened her life.

Slider ordered her to drive away to another spot, where he attempted to assault her. But the woman was able to get away. Slider drove off in her car.

Two days later, he abducted another woman from a shopping center in Anderson Township in Hamilton County. In June, Slider was convicted in Hamilton County and sentenced to 20 years in prison in that attack.

The Clermont victim was in court Friday.

She cried, asking why Slider couldn't have just taken her car and left her at the gas station.

"I don't understand why he would want to hurt a woman," she said. As part of an agreed sentence, Slider will serve an additional 20 years in prison, following completion of his 20-year sentence for the Hamilton County offense.
