Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain specificall which pest is attacking your roses. If it is a caterpillar of some kind, you should be able to control it easily using Bt (available at the garden center). You might also want to consult with your county extension (837-1402)for a more specific identification of the pest and recommendations of how to control it.
