    For the first time since being held up inside a Sprint store, one of the victims is talking about his horrifying ordeal. He spoke exclusively with NBC 7's Steven Luke, just hours after detectives released surveillance video showing the entire robbery unfold.

    A suspect in a number of armed robberies in North County was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals over the weekend.
