It sounds like dust and scratches from a playing vinyl record. There are many plugins that can help you with that, for instance iZotope Vinyl which is free.
There is something else to it though: a filter-like movement, which could be a phaser effect or simply an EQ filter.
Impossible to say for sure, but my guess is a contact microphone on some form of, maybe plastic, getting cut up or sheared. Or having something dragged on it. If so, I take it this comes from something already mixed, as the voice is impossible to get that way.
Even more likely though - It might also just be a cellphone or small recorder being dragged on a concrete or asphalt surface. Sounds too full to be just a simple microphone. Where did you find it?
