A rare sexual assault right out in the open was reported in Beverly Hills, and police in the 90210 want your help to track down a suspected predator.

Cops say the creep in question asked a victim for help in removing an item from a high shelf at the Pavillions supermarket at Olympic Boulevard and S. Beverwil Drive (what a gentleman).

He used that opportunity to …

… sexually batter the woman, the Beverly Hills Police Department alleges in a statement. He struck up a conversation in the aisles first, they said.

This actually happened a while back, in January, but police last night released images and video with the hope that someone might come forward and help them crack this case.

The BHPD describes the suspect this way:
