pests Mystery bug ??

Hi All, 
I was cleaning up some dead leaves etc off the pepper plants last night and saw a very strange bug. I wish I had a picture of it, but it was long and narrow, black in color but when i tried to look at it the bug would move quickly around the stem  to the other side of the plant to hide from sight,  I've not seen a bug move erratically like this. Without a picture does this sound like something anyone is familiar with ? 
Sorry for the image diagnosis, this is the first time I've seen this one this season. 
Have a great weekend. 
Squash bug? They like to play hide-n-seek.
