This looks to us like an adult Masked Hunter, a species of Assassin Bug that has adapted to living indoors with humans. We generally get images of “masked” immature Masked Hunters that are covered with debris as a means of camouflage. You can verify our identification by viewing this BugGuide image. According to BugGuide: “Can inflict a painful bite but does not feed on blood, and does not transmit diseases. Introduced from Europe.”
