A man who attacked his wife and her secret lover after using the Find My iPhone application to track them down has been jailed for a minimum of six months.
Robert Andrew Mann, 30, lost control when he unleashed his rage on wife Jaimi-Lee Atkinson and her then-partner Jeremy Sampson while brandishing a tyre lever in a western Sydney car park.
Despite the assault – and Mann being jailed – the couple, who have been married for 13 years, are now back together.

The shocking moment was captured on camera by stunned onlookers outside the Meriton Apartment complex in Parramatta on June 21.
Phone camera footage showed terrifying scenes of Ms Atkinson fleeing Mann as he chased her with the iron rod – before then turning his attention to her then-partner Mr Sampson.
Mann had become aware of the couple’s relationship after following the pair from Tamworth to Sydney by using the Find My iPhone app, 9 News reports.
He ambushed the pair by boxing in their vehicle with his four-wheel-drive before jumping out and shattering their car passenger window with a tyre lever.
Mann punched Mr Sampson between 20 – 30 times to the face and body as Ms Atkinson screamed for onlookers to call police.
Police officers had to use a taser to apprehend Mann, who now is believed to have reconciled with his wife who supported him in court on Tuesday at his sentencing.

Mann was charged with two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, one count of intentionally destroying/damaging property and driving on a suspended licence.
Magistrate Jenny Giles sentenced Mann to 12 months’ jail, with a non-parole period of six months.
He also lost his licence for two years and fined $300. He was able to walk free until he faces charges again in court next month after lodging an immediate appeal to the sentence.
