The train was travelling between Newry and Portadown when four men shouted abuse at the victim at around 10.30pm on Saturday.
They attacked the man, smashed his laptop and stole an mp3 player and two sets of earphones.
The man was taken to hospital where he was treated for a broken nose and minor head injuries.
The suspects left the train at Portadown.
Police are treating the incident as a hate crime and are appealing for anyone who was travelling on the Enterprise train or anyone with information to contact them.
A PSNI spokeswoman said: "Hate crime is unacceptable, no one deserves to experience it and no one deserves to get away with it. To stop it, report it, do not suffer in silence."
