Please help me ID a pest attacking my bell pepper plant!

*full disclaimer - I'm a gardening newbie*

2 weeks ago I transplanted 2 bell pepper plants, 1 red and 1 orange, about 12-18 inches apart in my raised bed garden. Ever since something is attacking my red one but leaving the orange completely untouched.

The damage is a mix of holes and chunks missing from leaves. Picture attached.

I did find one green caterpillar and plucked it off several days ago but it seems like the damage is worse and can't find any other culprit (I've been checking every am and afternoon for the past week)

Other potentially relevant info - planted along with 2 cherry tomato plants.Last thing planned on the same space was kale which I took out about 4 months ago.
