This is the horrific moment a man is repeatedly slashed with a machete as his sister screams out for help.

The victim was set upon by an armed gang while standing outside the Everydayz shop in Vauxhall, Liverpool, at around 6.15pm on Thursday.

A woman can be heard pleading for them to stop and shouts ‘Call the police, call the police’ during the brief but brutal attack.

The man is wearing a red top which appears to be slashed open from neck to waist.

The name Stephen is shouted out as the attackers flee the scene.

Police said they were aware of the video, which has been widely shared on social media, and enquiries to establish the full circumstances of the incident are continuing.

Three men, armed with what was described as a machete and a baseball bat, escaped the scene in a small van along Vauxhall Road out of the city.
