Man-eating bug - Mark 3

Following on from my previous attack-of-the-killer-bug series, I have been invaded by this one now...

Found in my bedroom, undoubtedly preparing for what would have been a lethal attack as soon as I took off my dressing gown. Thankfully my swift action with a glass and a postcard, I thwarted it - it's mates may still be in hiding though.

Any ideas s to what it is, @theclaud et al?

It's a shield bug of some description.

Most are harmless sap suckers and can produce a pongy whiff when threatened, unlike the one in the photo which feeds on human faces
