Park Ridge man held on $275K in Northwest Side crime spree, DUI

A 44-year-old Park Ridge man tried to rob a Northwest Side McDonald's where he had ordered coffee Thursday morning, then went on to make two more robbery attempts before he stole cash during a fourth try.
Nick Kanatselis, 44, was arrested in the 5800 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the Belmont-Central neighborhood after officers spotted him in a car connected with robbery attempts in the area and chased him for a mile.
He was ordered held Saturday on $275,000 bail.
Kanatselis, of the 600 block of Northwest Highway in the northwest suburb, faces charges of robbery, attempted robbery, and possession of marijuana, as well as being cited for aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, aggravated fleeing, driving on a revoked license,and having no insurance. Kanatselis also has been charged with domestic battery for punching his girlfriend several times in a separate incident Oct. 6.
About 7:30 a.m. Thursday, officers in the 4800 block of West Fullerton Avenue saw a car matching the description of one used in at least three Northwest Side robbery attempts.
The man drove off to try to evade capture, striking several other cars before he jumped from the vehicle in the 5800 block of West Fullerton.
Officers chased him on foot and caught him nearby.
The man, now identified as Kanatselis, is suspected of three robbery attempts, only one successful, at retail stores and an attack on a woman on a sidewalk. The three stores were a McDonald's in the 4000 block of West Belmont Avenue, a CVS in the 3300 block of North Pulaski Road, and a Walgreens in the 4000 block of North Cicero Avenue.
The Park Ridge man's one-man crime spree started about 7 a.m. Thursday when he ordered a coffee at the McDonald's. When a staffer asked if he would like cream or sugar in it, he implied he had a gun in his jacket and said: "Just give me the money".
The staffer was shocked and began to approach her manager, but the assailant walked around the counter, grabbed her by the back of her sweater and again demanded money.
Other workers saw the commotion and began yelling at the man. He let her go and fled without cash.
Only minutes later at 7:12 a.m. he entered the CVS and tried to rob it, but was unsuccessful, so he ran outside, where he pushed a woman in the chest and knocked her to the ground.
As they wrestled, he started to pull at her backpack but became "startled" by a passerby and fled again in the car.
His fourth robbery try was at the Walgreens about 7:20 a.m. when he confronted a cashier who was trying to close a cash drawer.
When he reached over and grabbed money from the drawer, the cashier tried to pull the money from his hand. He ran behind the counter and began hitting her, pushed her into a wall and grabbed the money tray before running out of the store.
Prosecutors said in bond court today that he asked for a pack of Newport cigarettes before grabbing $252 from the cash register.
Once brought into custody a short while later, officers found $223 in his pockets and $40 in a silver Chevrolet 2-door car he'd been driving. He was brought back to the victims, who identified him.
Once he was examined at Resurrection Medical Center, authorities found he was under the influence of alcohol and cocaine.
This is Kanatselis' fourth arrest this year. In February and May, he was arrested on domestic battery charges, but both cases were dismissed. On Aug. 27, he was arrested on a theft charge and ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bail, but charges were later dropped.

When it comes to America's racial past and present, lies and snake oil are sold in many colors.
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, conservatives in media have sought to deflect from the racism and racial profiling that precipitated his untimely death by referencing the broader social malaise of supposed "black-on-black violence."
On last week's episode of This Week on ABC, Washington Post columnist George Will said that despite the Trayvon tragedy, "150 black men are killed every week in this country," and "about 94 percent of them by other black men."
Will parroted arguments made by many conservatives, his intended point being that black-on-black crime remains the real problem our nation should address. The half-truth he spoke went curiously unchallenged by the panel -- including former White House adviser Van Jones -- largely because the meta-narrative of black-on-black violence is widely accepted in journalistic and political circles.
Bill O'Reilly, the Fox News host and one-man propaganda machine, recently interviewed Columbia University professor Marc Lamont Hill to discuss similar claims from Wall Street Journal contributor Shelby Steele, who wrote in "The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin" that "black teenagers are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites." O'Reilly vehemently defended Steele's premise that the Trayvon Martin case is an anomaly.
"Blacks today are nine times more likely to be killed by other blacks than by whites," Steele wrote. He went on to attack the Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for "exploiting" Trayvon's death in an effort to promote a "liberal" agenda -- a point that O'Reilly was all too happy to expound.
Steele's perspective, though myopic and misguided, remains pervasive and embedded in the broader social consciousness. This red-herring approach is not new, but in the face of Trayvon's death -- for which there remains no arrest, no charges and no arraignment -- these obstructive tactics require an equal and opposite response.
What Will, Steele and O'Reilly failed to mention is the exacting truth that white Americans are just as likely to be killed by other whites. According to Justice Department statistics (pdf), 84 percent of white people killed every year are killed by other whites.
