A New York orthodontist has been arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly stabbing her ex-fiance's new girlfriend then posing as a Good Samaritan who wanted to help her. 

The Westchester County District Attorney's Office announced the indictment of Alika Crew, 41, of New Rochelle, on Thursday. She appeared in Westchester County Court Wednesday.

Authorities said Crew seriously injured the woman, who has not been identified and is in a relationship with the doctor's ex-fiance 35-year-old Kurtz Howell.

Crew allegedly attacked the 30-year-old woman on July 28 by lunging at her from a crouching position behind the driver's seat in the victim's car.

Crew then sliced the victim's neck with a razor blade causing significant and 'possibly permanent damage to the neck,' according to authorities.  

Crew also left injuries on the victim's hand, which was cut when the victim tried to push her away.
