Julian Assange Surrenders to Authorities

Julian Assange surrendered to British Police today. He called them and arranged to meet them at a train station. What is his crime?
Julian Assange was making love to a woman, and his condom broke. She apparently said stop, and he apparently did not. She testified that they were both having consensual sex. However, after Wikileaks published stories that made a few people uncomfortable - and she finds out that he had another girlfriend - she goes to the authorities.
This does not seem to be the type of crime that requires an international hunting squad and doubleplus security. However, The United Kingdom is saying that it's ok to suspend due process, and hold someone without bond or bail - after they actually surrendered themselves to authority.
It's 2010. Welcome to 1984.
