Hi Hazem, to understand this sentence correctly, you need punctuation. If you add a comma after "in", it will be clearer and easier to understand: so for example: "when a report does come in, they think ‘Oh, maybe the girl was just drunk?' ' so "When a report does come in," means: when the police do receive a report about the girl's accusations, they think, "oh maybe the girl was just drunk". They have doubt about her accusations and they think that she was probably drunk.
