I can't find a definition for this word アメテ. Aside from sounding like an amateur, the word didn't make sense in the context.

In the context, a character was flipping out. The entire sentence he screamed was:


Is this just a random sound he made or... what?

The sentence before ended with してるわけ!! if that helps.

アメテ! is baby speech for やめて! (Stop it!).
