NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- It's hard to resist cheesecake, but there's a woman Brooklyn who no doubt wishes she had.

It was the old 'almost look-alike cheesecake' caper, in which Queens DA Richard Brown says 42-year-old Russian native Victoria Nasyrova brought a poisoned cheesecake to the Forest Hills home of her friend Olga who bore a striking resemblance to Nasyrova.

Olga dug in and passed out.

Brown said after drugging her doppleganger, Nasyrova stole Olga's passport, but Olga recovered.

Private detective Eric Weisberg said Nasyrova is on Rikers Island where she belongs.

"She really didn't have concern for anyone but herself. A very ruthless person," he said.

Nasyrova could serve up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
