NEW YORK — A black man convicted in the death of a white Jewish scholar during race riots in the 1990s has been stabbed in the head with an ice pick in a possible road rage attack, police said late Sunday.

Lemrick Nelson was found outside his car on a Manhattan street early Sunday and was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. Police had made no arrests.

Nelson was a central figure in the rioting that tore through Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood in 1991, stoked by tensions between the Jewish and black communities living side by side.
