FOREST HILLS & REGO
CHEESECAKE TO TRY AND
STEAL FRIEND’S ID
A Brooklyn woman with a notorious
past faces attempted murder charges
for allegedly trying to kill a Forest
Hills woman with a piece of tainted
cheesecake nearly two years ago in
order to steal her identity, prosecutors
announced on Feb. 28.
Victoria Nasyrova, 42, visited the
then-35-year-old woman’s home on
Aug. 28, 2016, and brought cheesecake
with her as a gift . According to
Queens District Attorney Richard
A. Brown, the two women had previously
met and shared very similar
features: both had dark hair and the
same skin complexion and spoke
Nasyrova, however, was there not
to bond with her friend — but rather
to steal her life, law enforcement
During their meeting, law enforcement
sources said, the Forest Hills
woman ate a slice of cheesecake that
Nasyrova provided her, then soon
began to feel ill. The last thing she
remembered before passing out,
prosecutors said, was Nasyrova sitting
The day aft er, prosecutors noted,
one of the victim’s friends found her
unconscious on her bed, dressed in
lingerie, with pills scattered around
her body. Authorities said Nasyrova
allegedly set the scene up to make it
appear as if the woman had attempted
to kill herself.
Paramedics rushed the victim to a
local hospital for treatment, and she
made a recovery. When she returned
home, Brown said, she realized that
her passport, her employment authorization
card, a gold ring and cash
During the investigation, law enforcement
agents and the Department
of Homeland Security recovered some
of the cheesecake and tested it. They
found that it had been laced with
phenazepam, a drug developed by the
Soviet Union in 1975 and commonly
used today in Russia and other European
countries to treat anxiety and
other psychiatric and neurological
The FBI also determined that the
pills on the victim’s bed were phenazepam
In March of 2017, the New York Post
reported, police in Brooklyn arrested
Nasyrova for allegedly scamming two
men out of money and jewelry. She has
been incarcerated ever since, and is
also suspected of committing murder
Nasyrova appeared in Queens
Criminal Court on Feb. 28 for arraignment
on a 10-count indictment in the
cheesecake poisoning case, including
second-degree attempted murder,
fi rst-degree charges of burglary, attempted
assault, reckless endangerment
and unlawful imprisonment,
second-degree assault, third-degree
grand larceny, petit larceny and
fi ft h-degree criminal possession of
