On May 24, a Surrey business owner was threatened at gunpoint by two masked men.

Global News will not be naming the business owner for safety reasons.

He said the two gunmen entered his store and threatened him to answer their “boss’ phone call.”

“The guy in the black hoodie and a black mask came to my office, he said, ‘Why are you not picking up my boss’ phone calls?’,” the owner told Global News.
