Los Angeles - Two members of The Wanted were attacked at knifepoint on Wednesday.

The Glad You Came hitmakers Siva Kaneswaran, 25, and Jay McGuiness, 23, reportedly got into a scuffle with a homeless man in Denver, Colorado, after he demanded they give him money and pulled out a knife.

A source told gossip website that the terrifying incident took place when the duo passed the man outside a movie theatre, where they had just watched Transcendence while on a break from their farewell tour.

Their assailant asked them for money and Siva obliged, giving him a few dollars, but he then demanded more and threatened them with the weapon.

The singers scuffled with the man and eventually got away.

No one was injured in the attack and the pop stars decided not to call the police.

The group - which also includes members Max George Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes - called time on their four-year pop career in January, releasing a statement on their website revealing they will temporarily split to "pursue personal endeavours" following their Word Of Mouth shows.
