A woman allegedly tried to kill her look-alike with poisoned cheesecake in a devious attempt to steal the victim's identity, New York City prosecutors said Wednesday. "Offering a gift of cheesecake, the defendant is alleged to have laced the dessert with a Russian drug and presented it to the unsuspecting victim".

"The woman ate the cheesecake, fell ill and laid down", lawyer Richard Brown said.

A friend discovered Tsvyk the next day, dressed in underwear and lying unconscious on a bed littered with prescription drugs. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment and she survived the poisoning.
