Background
Prosecutors allege that on July 28, 2020, defendant Alika Crew of New Rochelle, attacked her former fiancé’s new girlfriend, lunging at her from a crouching position behind the driver’s seat in the victim’s car. The victim fled from the car, only to be caught by Crew after a short chase. Crew then sliced the victim’s neck with a razor blade causing significant and possibly permanent damage to the neck, as well as to the victim’s hand, which was cut when the victim tried to push Crew away. The attack took place just a few blocks from where Crew and her ex-fiancé were still living together as the victim drove away from the house after spending the night. When neighbors came to aid the victim, Crew left the scene, but then returned moments later and pretended to be an additional concerned neighbor. When police arrived, the victim pointed Crew out as the attacker and police arrested Crew at the scene.

 In compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 3.6, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
