Has nothing to do with what kind of citizen he is. Ecuador has given him asylum and he's physically inside the embassy which is protected by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations:
1. The premises of the mission shall be inviolable. The agents of the receiving State may not enter them, except with the consent of the head of the mission.
2. The receiving State is under a special duty to take all appropriate steps to protect the premises of the mission against any intrusion or damage and to prevent any disturbance of the peace of the mission or impairment of its dignity.
3. The premises of the mission, their furnishings and other property thereon and the means of transport of the mission shall be immune from search, requisition, attachment or execution.
If England were to bust in and arrest Assange, they'd be terminating the treaty which is not something they want to do since they as well as America have more Embassies around the world then anybody and we use those Embassies as headquarters for our espionage activities.
Instead England has spent tens of millions of dollars maintaining a 24 hour stake out of the Embassy, effectively imprisoning Assange.
