The incident happened at 11.45pm on February 5 on a train travelling between King's Cross and Hatfield when a man returning to Letchworth GC suffered a broken jaw and a chipped tooth in the attack.
BTP said the victim had gone to the toilet and left his bag on the seat and when he returned he found the three men going through the contents.
After objecting to what was happening the man was assaulted leaving him with the injuries. The three men got off at Hatfield station while the victim left the train at Welwyn Garden City where police were called.
