The manic Manhattan arts professor who held a machete to a Post reporter’s neck and threatened to “chop” him up surrendered to police Thursday.
Shellyne Rodriguez, 45, was caught on camera wielding the blade and spewing menacing remarks Tuesday outside her Bronx apartment.
She surrendered to the 43rd precinct in the Bronx just after 7 a.m. Thursday.
The shocking chain of events unfolded when the veteran Post reporter knocked on Rodriguez’s door to ask her about viral footage of her cursing out Hunter College pro-life students.
“Get the f–k away from my door, or I’m gonna chop you up with this machete,” the unhinged professor screamed before barging out with the blade.
After the reporter and a photographer quickly exited the apartment building, dash cam video showed Rodriguez — still armed with the machete — chasing them down the street.
“If I see you on this block one more f–king time, you’re gonna …,” Rodriguez said.
“Get the f–k off the block! Get the f–k out of here, yo!”
She then kicked the reporter in his shins before retreating back into her building.
Rodriguez was fired by Hunter College in the wake of the ordeal, while the School of Visual Arts — where she also worked as a professor — was reviewing her employment as of Wednesday.
The saga came after Rodriguez had made headlines earlier this week when footage surfaced online showing her unleashing a profanity-laden attack on anti-abortion students at Hunter College back on May 2.
“You’re not educating s–t. This is f–king propaganda,” the art professor told students as they stood behind an information table they’d set up.
“What are you going to do, like, anti-trans next?” she continued before tossing the students’ pamphlets on the ground.
