I would think that there is a build up of rust on the abs sensor or its target ( a ring of raised metal casltations on the driveshaft) the noise is the rust rubbing away but as there is a metallic build up it clogs the unit and does not send the correct output to the abs computer. Jack up the corner where the noise is and check/ clean. If the car has drum brakes and the noise is from the rear you'll have to strip down the drum.

Hope this helps
