THIS is the shocking moment a young man was hacked by a machete-wielding attacker in Spain. 

The clip, obtained by El Pais, shows a young man attacking another local as he lies defenseless on the ground.

The video was shared on social media this morning after being recorded on Calle Carretes in the El Raval neighbourhood in Barcelona.

Police and ambulance services rushed to the scene at around 8am today.

The wounded, a young man around 25 years of age, is said to have known the aggressor and has been transferred to the Hospital del Mar.

Police have recovered the machete and are hunting for the attacker.

Both men are from north Africa and the attack is believed to be related to drug trafficking.

The investigation continues.
