Police were called just after 18:00 on Friday, 21 January to a residential block in The Herons, New Wanstead following reports of a man falling from a height.
Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man, aged in his 60s, suffering from a head injury.
He was taken to a local hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.
An investigation has so far found that two men forced their way into the property and threatened the man with a machete before he fell.
Another person, a woman in their 20s and who was known to the man, was found at the scene with a back injury.
It is believed that she sustained those injuries when she climbed from one balcony to the safety of a neighbouring property.
