The Post reported that Shellyne Rodriguez, 45, turned herself in at the NYPD's 43rd Precinct in the morning of May 25. The former Hunter College adjunct professor wore black sunglasses while flanked by a handful of supporters. She was later escorted out of the precinct located in The Bronx just after 11 a.m. of the same day.
Two days earlier, on May 23, Rodriguez threatened veteran reporter Reuven Fenton by holding a machete against his throat. He politely knocked on the door of her apartment on the morning of that day, informing Rodriguez that he was from the Post. Fenton wanted to ask her about her comments on a viral video of an incident she was involved in.
"Get the f**k away from my door, or I'm [going to] chop you up with this machete," she threatened from inside. The unhinged leftist barged out seconds later, put the machete to Fenton's neck and told the reporter to leave, before retreating and slamming the door shut. At this point, Fenton and his accompanying photographer Robert Miller – who recorded Rodriguez's outburst – immediately left.
However, Rodriguez wanted blood and quickly followed the two. She threatened to use the bladed weapon on both the moment she sees them on the block one more time. Unsatisfied, she chased down Miller and kicked him in the shins before finally returning to her apartment.
Hunter College terminated the leftist when news of the attack on Fenton and Miller surfaced. Vince DiMiceli, a spokesman for the institution, confirmed Rodriguez's firing in the afternoon of May 23.
"[The college] strongly condemns the unacceptable actions of Shellyne Rodriguez and has taken immediate action," he told the Post. "[She] has been relieved of her duties at Hunter College effective immediately, and will not be returning to teach at the school."

The leftist's woes began when a video from a May 2 incident at the college surfaced. The footage posted on Twitter by Students for Life of America featured Rodriguez raining profanities at pro-life students who set up an information table.
"You're not educating s**t. This is f**king propaganda," she blurted out to the pro-life students that were informing people of the truth about abortion. "What are you going to do? [Is] anti-trans next?"
A male student behind the table clarified that they were talking about abortion, and apologized for "triggering" her students. In reply, the erstwhile professor blasted the student – telling him he couldn't be sorry "because [he] can't even have a f**king baby." Rodriguez then tossed the students' pamphlets before leaving.
Rodriguez broke her silence on May 24, a day after threatening Fenton, and played the victim card. In a statement given to ARTnews magazine, the leftist blasted her former place of employment for capitulating to "racists, white nationalists and misogynists."
According to Rodriguez, the incident has "taken a toll on [her] mental health." It has also reportedly robbed her of her "sense of safety" and created a "reasonable fear" that people will "show up at [her] home to cause physical harm." She also slammed "right wing media organizations" for "weaponizing and sensationalizing this case to further their agenda."
One unnamed student expressed their concerns to the Post: "I'm concerned about the people they're hiring as educators here. What process are they going through?" This same student also attested how teachers in Hunter College are "biased" and "very much against critical thought."
An unnamed professor at the same institution commented on the now-fired Rodriguez: "She's nutty, [and] she's not alone. We've got plenty of nuts here."
