A woman was reportedly raped by an unknown male in Orchards Playing Field, off Goodmayes Lane, at 7.20pm on Wednesday, 28 April.
She is being supported by specialist officers.
The suspect is also believed to have exposed himself to another woman in Goodmayes Park between 8pm and 9pm on Thursday, 13 May.
On both occasions, he was described as white with short dark hair and stubble.
Detectives have carried out extensive enquiries and following a thorough search of local CCTV cameras have released two images.
The picture from April shows the man wearing either a dark/blue jacket with red sleeves or a gilet over a red top; the bottom of the jacket has a distinct band which is white, red and blue. He was also wearing dark coloured trousers and carrying a rucksack.
In May he was wearing a dark coloured gilet over a grey top. He is also wearing black trousers.
Detective Constable Chris Maxim said: “Whilst we cannot say for certain that it is the same man in both images, his physical description is the same, and the items of clothing are clearly very similar.
“We are working closely with our partners, including the local authority, and I would urge anyone who can help our investigations to come forward and speak with us. Please take a look at these images – it is vital that we catch whoever is responsible.”
No arrests have been made and detectives are continuing to investigate both incidents.
