(WUSA) -- The couple held hostage in the Big Bear cabin by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner spoke out for the first time on Wednesday night.
Karen and Jim Reynolds say they walked into their place on Tuesday and found Dorner inside.
"He talked to us trying to calm us down and saying very frequently that he would not kill us," Karen Reynolds said.
The Reynolds said he told them he just wanted transportation out of Big Bear. He then proceeded to tie them up and stole their car but he did not hurt them.
