Insect bite... identify?

I hope someone can help solve this mystery. After searching for a while, we have come up with no result.

This morning, I was walking to my car and a bug flew into my shirt. When I ruffled around to get it out, I felt a painful sensation in my abdomen. Upon further examination of the insect, it almost looked like a mix between a cricket and a fly.

But here's the weird thing... the bite it left on my abdomen looks like a spider bite. It has two identical bite marks, not very small either. The puncture wounds are what weirds me out because I've never seen a double mark like that in a fly of any variety.

We thought maybe horsefly but I looked at horsefly bites and none of the images have two spots such as this.

If you have any ideas, please help!
