SHEEPSHEAD BAY, Brooklyn -- A Russian native from Brooklyn has been accused of poisoning her look-alike with a cheesecake and then stealing her identity and other property.
42-year-old Viktoria Nasyrova of Sheepshead Bay was arraigned Tuesday on attempted murder, burglary, assault and other charges and ordered held without bail. She was arrested in March last year. Her lawyer declined to comment.
Prosecutors say Nasyrova visited the Queens home of the fellow Russian speaking victim in 2016 bearing a cheesecake tainted with a tranquilizer.
They say the 35-year-old victim ate the cheesecake, fell ill and passed out. She was found the next day on her bed unconscious with pills scattered about as if she tried to kill herself.
Before passing out, the woman's last memory is of seeing the defendant sitting beside her inside her home, according to prosecutors.
The victim later realized her passport, employment card, a gold ring and cash were missing.
"This is a bizarre and twisted crime that could have resulted in the death of a Queens woman, whose only fault was that she shared similar features with the defendant," said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. "Offering a gift of a cheesecake, the defendant is alleged to have laced the dessert with a Russian drug and presented it to the unsuspecting victim. "
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.
Nasyrova faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
Men are weird.
RED AREA ALERT!....................
You dont go with the guilt-innocence thing, or whether Laz would hit it?
A Russian native from Brooklyn.........
Notice they never report Guatemalan native from wherever or Mexican native or El Salvadoran, etc.
I used to live in Brighton Beach & Sheepshead bay! All the ruskies came in claiming to be Jews but none would ever attend temple or talk to the real Jews like me already living there. Somehow they came with a lot of $ or were subsidized by the US gov. Either way they own both neighborhoods now. So glad I got the hell out of there in 84!
What’s with Russians and poison? Why are they in this country?
When the Russkies overran NYC in the late 70s, early 80s, I was working part time at NY Hospital (around the time the Shah was there). They were all on welfare and getting free healthcare on our dime. They were obnoxious beyond belief.
She has a history.

Sans makeup. Not so much...
If only the cops could track down Latino identity thefts this quickly.

Translation. The agents snuck a slice of cheesecake and were found hours later sleeping at their desks.
One of the other agents in the office exclaimed on seeing one of the snoozing agents, Joe looks so peaceful. Just like Jeff Sessions .
Don't be fooled, that can be said of the best of them.
It can be said of most of them, but the best of them don’t need makeup.
Maybe somebody should check on Laz. See if he is breathing normally and has not eaten any cheesecake lately.
Note to self: Never eat cheesecake from a Russian lookalike because God knows how I have a tremendous weakness for cheesecake...
