Russian Woman Allegedly Poisoned Look-Alike with Cheesecake

Authorities charged Russian native Viktoria Nasyrova for cooking a scheme to poison her friend with tainted cheesecake, all in order to steal her identity, reported the NY Daily News.

Prosecutors say that Nasirova visited the home of another Russian woman, who looked very much like her in Queens in 2016 with a cheesecake in which she had poured tranquilizers.

Last week, the NY authorities arrested 42-year-old Viktoria Nasyrova, a Russian femme fatale and charged her with several counts including burglary, reckless endangerment, and attempted murder.

The following day, a friend found the victim unconscious in her bed, "dressed in lingerie with pills scattered around her body as if the woman had attempted to kill herself", Brown said.

"This crime could have resulted in the death of a Queens woman, whose only fault was that she shared similar features with the defendant", he said.

Authorities say the victim and the defendant resembled each other.

Luckily, the plot was foiled and Tsvyk recovered in the hospital, but not without having her passport, IDs, jewelry and cash stolen by her so-called friend. Both are brunette, fair-skinned and speak Russian. She allegedly remembered seeing Nasyrova sitting beside her before she passed out.

Nasyrova was arrested on 20 March, at which time police found the victim's passport, employment card and ring. She's due in court on May 25, and faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Moral of the story?

A Queens grand jury just returned a 10-count indictment accusing Nasyrova of attempted murder, burglary, assault, reckless endangerment and other charges. She was accused of stealing from that victim as well, the News said.

But the Queens woman survived and Nasyrova was later apprehended, Brown said. In an earlier interview with CBS, Nasyrova denied forcing the woman to eat the cheesecake. Law enforcement agents with Homeland Security tested pieces of cheesecake that remained in its container and confirmed the sweet treat was laced with phenazepam, Brown said.

"She wanted to kill me", Tsvyk told the outlet.

Nasyrova fled to NY after dodging a 2014 murder rap in the death of Alla Aleksenko, 54, whose burned body was uncovered in a western Russian Federation grave.
