This wasp appears to be an "Ensign Wasp."
Harmless to humans and pets, and in fact considered to be a beneficial insect, as it is a parasite of cockroaches. Female wasps lay eggs inside the egg cases of the cockroaches, and their young develop by consuming the developing cockroaches inside their very own egg capsule until fully developed.
I was trying to ID this insect online after seeing one in the back yard, and my description of it led me to this (rather fantastic, by the way,) picture, and this informative page where I learned about it:
Hope this is of some help. :) Better late than never!
