BOISE, Idaho — A 37-year-old southwest Idaho man police say carjacked a vehicle in Nampa and briefly escaped custody while being brought back to Idaho from Montana has entered guilty pleas.

Rodney Lee Seiber pleaded guilty Thursday in Fourth District Court to attempted kidnapping and escape.

He was arrested on Sept. 25 in Montana near Garryowen in southeastern Montana.

He briefly escaped when a private security company's transport vehicle in October stopped to let him use the restroom along Interstate 84 southeast of Boise.

He tried to carjack a vehicle by brandishing a knife at the woman inside, but she drove away.

The guilty pleas stemmed from that escape attempt. He's scheduled to be sentenced in October.

Seiber still faces a charge from the reported carjacking in Nampa.
