The victim survived. She was found by a friend the following day, in bed wearing lingerie and surrounded by pills — a scene that made it look like she had attempted suicide. She was then taken to the hospital to be treated.
When she returned from the hospital, the victim discovered her passport and employment card were missing, as well as cash and a gold ring, law enforcement officials said.
Police tested the remaining pieces of the cheesecake, which were left in its container, and found that they were laced with phenazepam, a narcotic made in Russia.
[The woman] has previously been accused of murdering a woman in Russia and reportedly fled to Brooklyn, where she worked as a dominatrix.
