SUFFOLK - Police say a Chesapeake man was killed Wednesday morning when he crashed his motorcycle.

Police say Jon S. Christenson, 27, of the 1000 block of Rabbit Run, was running from police when he apparently lost control of his bike around 2:45 a.m.

City spokesperson Debbie George told WVEC.com that officers tried to pull him over on Godwin Blvd., but he sped off.

According to George, police wanted to talk to Christenson about an assault at a traffic signal on N. Main Street. Christenson allegedly assaulted someone after following him to Suffolk from Norfolk.

Police believe speed was a contributing factor.
