Every breach of promise to marry could not amount to Rape. “In a case of rape, the act of sexual intercourse is forcible and without consent of the woman. However, the consent obtained by fraud amounts to no consent and therefore, if there is sexual intercourse with consent but obtained by fraud, it amounts it amounts to rape. For example, if an illiterate woman is given promise to marry and under that promise, her consent is obtained for sexual intercourse, then, it can be said that the consent is obtained by fraud. So please be sure with evidences you produced tends to signify that he has cheated you.

- Section 376 of IPC

Filing of FIR will sets the criminal law in motion and police officers will conduct an inquiry regarding the same. Arrest of the accused is based on the gravity of the offence. However, in such henious crimes, arrest is compulsory. Bail is a matter which is left on discretion of Courts. In my opinion, go and lodge and FIR against the accused.
