Jay McGuiness and Siva Kaneswaran of The Wanted were allegedly attacked by a knife-wielding homeless man earlier this week.

According to TMZ, the singers were leaving a screening of Transcendence in Denver when they stopped to give the panhandler some money.

The man reportedly wasn’t satisfied with the amount and pulled a knife on McGuiness and Kaneswaran.

No one was injured or arrested in the skirmish that allegedly ensued before The Wanted members fled the scene.

Gossip Cop has not been able to verify this version of events, however, and either way, Kaneswaran seems to have enjoyed the evening.

“Saw #Transcendence last night! Loved it! Thanks for the free tix UA Denver Pavilions!” he tweeted on Wednesday.
