A 30-year-old man from Lowestoft has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. A 36-year-old man, also from Lowestoft, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery on Monday.
Police received a call after a member of the public heard shouting coming from the property.
Both women were taken to the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston.
The 28-year-old woman, who had suffered head injuries and a broken arm, was discharged after treatment.
The 47-year-old was transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, where she is in intensive care.
