The Glad You Came hitmakers were approached by the man outside a cinema complex on Wednesday, and he reportedly begged them for money before brandishing a knife at them.
The stars were not injured and did not report the incident to the police, and they posted a message on the band's official website on Friday to calm down fans who thought the singers had been attacked.
The post on the site reads: "To put everyone's minds at ease, Siva & Jay are just fine. Any reports of being 'attacked' are untrue. Tho (sic) they did catch a movie."
McGuiness also addressed the story on Twitter, writing: "To reassure you, we were NOT stabbed, but a guy in Denver did pull a knife out on us - do not worry, we were lucky & we still love Denver."
The Wanted were in the city as part of their North American tour. They will take a hiatus following the completion of their ongoing global trek.
